About this grant

This initiative aims to reduce poverty by supporting workforce development organizations that increase employment, earnings and parental engagement among low-income, non-custodial fathers under age 30. This grant increase will enable the Vocational Foundation to provide additional computer skills instruction to participating young fathers; offer more course hours of preparation for the GED; and hire instructors for the additional course offerings.
