About this grant

In 1998, Mott initiated a national demonstration aimed at replicating sectoral employment interventions. A recent evaluation of the demonstration has shown that seven of the 10 sites thus far have been successful in expanding earnings for low-income workers. One of the most successful sites was Primavera Works, a nonprofit day labor agency in Tucson.Funding will support the replication of Primavera Works in other communities in the southwest. Project objectives include networking and supporting the two existing day labor businesses in Arizona; cultivating and networking new day labor sector interventions in New Mexico and Nevada; conducting ongoing monitoring and regulatory education work in the region; and informing state policymakers in the region about ethical industry practices.The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness, founded in 1991, is a statewide network of 75 individuals and homeless service providers. Its mission is to end homelessness through advocacy, policy education and grassroots organizing.
