Under a contract with the Fulton County Department of Family and Children Services in Georgia, Grant Associates has begun a new program to provide placement and retention services for applicants of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). With the goal helping participants obtain and maintain steady employment so that they can avoid public assistance, Grant Associates will deliver intensive case management, retention, job coaching, and mentoring services in addition to job placement.
In its first quarter operating the Workforce1 Manufacturing Career Center, Grant Associates has already exceeded placement goals. Among the placements were six CDL Route Sales positions at Pepsi, an account developed jointly with the Workforce1 Transportation Career Center. One of the positions filled by the Manufacturing Center was for a $75,000 Process Engineer placement at S & L Aerospace, representing its highest salary placement to date
