About this grant

This grant will enable the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce, in partnership with Social Venture Solutions, Inc., to work with the Michigan Department of Human Services and the Department of Labor and Economic Growth to create a pilot project in Michigan to test the viability of a full-scale Food Stamps Employment and Training Program across the state. This effort seeks to: increase the number of food stamp recipients who have access to Food Stamps Employment and Training Program services, including education, training, and employment assistance; leverage the current investment of public and private nonfederal funds in the workforce development system to improve and broaden services; and increase the enrollment rate among eligible food stamp recipients who are not currently enrolled in the food stamp program.
