Thank you for your interest in the Career Readiness Mini-Grants. These awards of up to $5,000 are available thanks to a Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry Strategic Innovation Grant received by Team Pennsylvania Foundation (Team PA).

In partnership with the Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and the 29 regional IUs, this grant will help fund career readiness work at the school district level while also fostering a greater alignment and coordination between schools and districts and their Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs).
