Advancing Racial Equity in Workforce Development Grantees Announced

ABC, Workforce Matters and The Annie E. Casey Foundation are excited to announce the awardees of the “Advancing Racial Equity in Workforce Development” grant opportunity.  This was a competitive RFP process with 11 organizations submitting strong proposals.  In the end, the project team selected a total of seven organizations to support their efforts to integrate and apply a racial equity lens to their organizational, operational, and programmatic practices in addition to their policies and strategies in order to better address the race-based educational, economic, and employment disparities seen across the country.


Announcing the Awardees:

Advance CTE

Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW)

Jobs for the Future (JFF)

National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity and Education (NAPE)

National Fund for Workforce Solutions (NFWS)

National Skills Coalition (NSC)

The Economic Opportunities Program (EOP) – The Aspen Institute


This project seeks to leverage the unique position of the organizations to make a broader impact on the field of workforce development. We hope that this support will better equip these national and regional organizations to influence and build the capacity of their local members and affiliates.  The grant year began on July 1, 2019 and end on June 30, 2020.
