Economic Opportunity and Security

Increasing Economic Equity

We look for ways to strengthen economic opportunity, security and equity for low-income individuals, families and the community through a variety of approaches with a focus on increased economic equity. In particular, we are interested in community development, supporting more effective workforce education and training, and in creating good jobs and pathways to those jobs.
