Maryland’s Workforce Development Response to Homelessness Across the State - Workforce Development & Adult Learning
Since 2014, Maryland’s Interagency Council on Homelessness has been tasked with examining statewide initiatives and recommending policy solutions to end homelessness in the state. Among those recommendations is a proposal to blend housing services with workforce development strategies in order to create a pathway to housing stability.
In partnership with the Department of Housing and Community Development, Labor released the Workforce Solutions to Address Homelessness Competitive Grant Solicitation in February of 2022. This initiative seeks to establish partnerships across systems to align and coordinate the delivery of employment and related services to individuals at-risk-of or currently experiencing homelessness. Successful applicants will form a consortium that includes workforce development partners, organizations that provide services to individuals experiencing homelessness, and employer and industry partners.Workforce Solutions to Address Homelessness Pre-Proposal Conference Presentation
