About this grant
This grant to Public Policy Associates, Inc., will develop a base of knowledge about Regional Skills Alliances that does not currently exist. This work will allow the Mott Foundation to continue its catalytic role on sectoral workforce development in Michigan. Sectoral employment components such as Regional Skills Alliances can help companies increase their competitiveness and contribute to their regional economies. Regional Skill Alliances can also help attract more firms to an area once the area begins to be perceived as a hub for a particular industry. As these results become more widespread, Michigan’s economy should benefit.
