Legacy Project

Job-Driven National Emergency Grant

Skills retraining is essential to sustainable employment for dislocated and long-term unemployed workers. The Job-Driven National Emergency Grant is a collaborative partnership that helps disadvantaged Arkansans gain the skills and referrals they need to land positions in high-growth industries like medical billing and coding. Winrock case managers based at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith work with prospective employees to locate training options, write resumes, apply for jobs and prepare for interviews.
