About this grant
This grant will support a partnership between the Insight Center for Community Economic Development’s National Network of Sector Partners and mid-South leaders to develop a Southern Sectoral Employment Initiative. Sector employment development aims to help low-income workers find, keep, and advance in good-paying jobs, while also improving the regional economy by addressing labor-market needs in targeted industry sectors. This initiative will be geared toward expanding support for sector initiatives in the South and creating upward mobility for low-wage, low-skilled workers.
