About this grant

The temporary employment services sector increasingly serves as a point of entry to employment for disadvantaged jobseekers. In response, several nonprofit workforce development organizations have established alternative staffing programs. These nonprofit services provide temporary employment opportunities while simultaneously addressing the clients’ barriers to employment. This grant will enable Easter Seals-Goodwill Northern Rocky Mountain to continue its alternative staffing program, operating in Boise and Nampa, Idaho. Activities will include providing additional hard-skills training to clients; securing new business customers; improving services for both the clients and the business customers; and increasing the average wage at placement, number of permanent placements and number of clients served.
