About this grant
Over the past two years, Public/Private Ventures has managed an effort to launch three alternative staffing organizations in Louisiana’s Gulf Coast region, an area that is still recovering from the aftereffects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Alternative staffing organizations, which are temporary staffing firms owned and operated by community-based agencies, have the potential to bridge the gap between the needs of employers and employees. With this grant increase, Public/Private Ventures will continue to support, manage, and evaluate the implementation of the three alternative staffing projects.
