About this grant
This grant provides partial support to the Insight Center for Community Economic Development to direct the development of the National Network of Sector Partners. The network serves as the trade association for sectoral employment programs, as a vehicle to coordinate the national dialogue about sector initiatives, and to advance a national sector strategy that is responsive to the concerns and priorities of stakeholders. This year, the National Network of Sector Partners will serve as an information clearinghouse for sector practitioners, develop a marketing plan to promote increasing membership, and design and implement a public policy agenda.
