Grant Associates Launches Second Stimulus-funded Program

In January, Grant Associates launched Company Connections, an intensive training and job placement program for people with criminal justice histories. Company Connections is designed to help participants achieve multiple outcomes: attainment of a GED of high school diploma; attainment of an industry recognized credential, such as the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL); enrollment in an advanced training program; and unsubsidized employment. Housed at Grant Associates’ Manhattan headquarters, the program will serve 60 Out of School Youth and 180 Adults with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds from the New York State Department of Labor.
