Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Illinois non-profit organizations that offer job preparation programs for youth and job training and workforce development opportunities for unemployed and under-employed adults living in the Chicago metropolitan area. These grants are intended to give area residents the tools they need to advance in the workforce.

Funding may be used to support the following types of programs:

1. Advocacy/Technical Assistance: Funding supports agencies that provide research on best practices, train direct service providers, promote change in the workforce delivery system, or advocate for increased public funding for programs.

2. Transitional Jobs Programs: These programs provide real work experience, supportive services, and earned income for the chronically unemployed. Program participants will have significant barriers to employment, including criminal records, histories of homelessness, limited English proficiency, long-term welfare dependence, and educations below the 6th grade level. Transitional Jobs programs train participants on work culture and routines, and help them establish employment records and references.

3. Job Training and Economic Development (JTED): These programs are based in community organizations and developed in partnership with local businesses or industries. JTED programs help low income job seekers build important skills related to growth industries that pay a living wage and provide opportunity for advancement. JTED programs include skills training that lead to an industry certificate or license.

4. Youth Skills Training: Job services to youth that lead to a credential and job placement for youth, ages 16 - 24.
