Grants to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, and education and training providers to benefit employers and employees throughout the state, especially due to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Applicants are expected to form partnerships and collaborations to meet the specific needs of job seekers with barriers to employment. Programs are expected to lead to participants being hired or promoted as a result of training or intervention.
The purpose of Real Pathways RI is to promote and support partnerships between and among public, private, and nonprofit agencies, education and training providers, and other partners as necessary, within a specific geographic region, or who focus on a similar population with barriers to employment (ex. Individuals with a disability, persons experiencing homelessness, former offenders, etc.). These partnerships collaborate to build workforce solutions that address the unique workforce challenge their clients face. Through such a model: efforts are coordinated, not duplicated; resources are leveraged, not overextended; and providers focus more on what they do best and less on extending their core mission to meet grant expectations.
