About this grant
This grant will continue support to the Interfaith Education Fund to replicate and expand the scale of its sectoral employment initiatives throughout the Southwest. The grantee’s sectoral employment initiatives define the skills required to succeed in targeted, hard-to-fill occupations with viable career ladders, and then recruits and trains low-income adults so they are qualified and ready to fill employers’ needs for skilled workers. Multiyear funding will enable the grantee to replicate its work in Phoenix; Houston; Monroe, Louisiana; and Los Angeles, and increase the numbers being served by initiatives in San Antonio, El Paso, Austin, and the Lower Rio Grand Valley, Texas; and Tucson, Arizona.
