In 2017, Community Grants in Economic Opportunity will focus on improving the economic health of people and communities facing the biggest barriers to economic equity.
- Build community wealth by developing and keeping economic resources, including residents, in low-income communities, and by supporting residents of those communities who are working to develop the local economy
- Support comprehensive training for those facing barriers to employment in jobs with family-sustaining wages, including a focus on job placement and post-employment support
- Support efforts by low-wage workers to create a more equitable economy, including through advocacy and policy reform
