Innovative City and State Funding Approaches to Supporting Subsidized Employment and Transitional Jobs
Mar 19, 2013 | Chris Warland and Melissa Young, National Transitional Jobs Network and Elizabeth Lower-Basch, CLASP
A new paper from the National Transitional Jobs Network and CLASP provides strategies and makes recommendations on leveraging and blending multiple sources of funding to support subsidized employment programs. In addition to highlighting the opportunities to use block grant funding, from both TANF and Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), the paper identifies efforts to fund these jobs by averting future expenses associated with prisons and other corrections measures and by leveraging public contracting and bidding opportunities.
The recorded webinar is also available.
