The National Fund for Workforce Solutions (National Fund) continues to support and advance the Foundation’s goals within the grants focus area of Jobs. The National Fund’s more than 30 regional collaboratives bring together partners, helping workers to succeed and providing employers with the talent needed to compete. The Foundation has committed $1.25 million through 2022 to support additional response to COVID-19, as well as the development of two new collaboratives in Hawai‘i and Northeastern Pennsylvania that will serve as models for future urban and rural partnerships.
The Weinberg Foundation, in partnership with the Abell Foundation and Annie E. Casey Foundation, is supporting a Wage Record Study through the Baltimore Workforce Funders Collaborative (BWFC).
