Bridges to Career Opportunities, Funding Announcement


The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), with funding from the Social Innovation Fund, would like to announce the opening of a grant competition for its Bridges to Career Opportunities (BCO) program.  LISC will use a competitive process to select and fund nonprofit organizations that can effectively operate contextualized "bridge" programming, and connections to skills training for low-income unemployed and underemployed neighborhood residents, in which individuals are supported by career coaches and financial coaches through the process. 

Funding will be limited to the following geographies: Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; Greater Cincinnati Area, OH (including Newport and Covington, KY); Detroit, MI; Duluth, MN; Houston, TX; Indianapolis, IN; Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN; Philadelphia, PA; Providence and Woonsocket, RI; San Diego, CA; and Uniontown, PA.

LISC intends to award approximately 32 grants ranging averaging around $175,000 per award. Recipients will be required to provide a one-to-one cash match of any award.
