U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) grantees now have access to dedicated or customized technical assistance and coaching for implementation of America’s Promise Initiative-funded programs. These initiatives are a part of the DOL efforts to accelerate regional workforce partnerships and provide a pipeline of skilled workers to key sectors.
