The Springfield Republican covered the award of $250,000 to the region to support workforce development for homeless families in an article and an opinion editorial on Thursday, April 23. Great news for Western Massachusetts!
The Commonwealth Corporation just announced its award of $230,000 to Corporation for Public Management, the lead agency for our Secure Jobs Connect program, providing additional resources to support employment for homeless individuals. This grant will allow us to expand the program in Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire Counties in partnership with Franklin/Hampshire Career Center, ServiceNet and Construct, Inc.
The Daily Hampshire Gazette provided front page news coverage on the grant. You can read all about it here.
Congratulations to all!
