Critical Sector Job Quality

The purpose of this demonstration program is to support transformative efforts to improve job quality and availability of good jobs, particularly for the benefit of historically marginalized populations and communities that have experienced barriers to employment in good jobs. The primary focus of these demonstration grants is expanding job quality in the care, climate resiliency, and hospitality sectors. These demonstration grants will do so through industry-led, worker-centered sector strategies built through labor-management partnerships. The projects funded by these grants will be centered on the needs of workers—designing training models and providing training that promotes equity, job quality, and worker voice.
