Jobs in today’s workforce require more training and certification than ever before, as well as varied and coordinated funding support to create and foster necessary talent pipelines. These look different among municipalities. From state-sponsored training programs offering incentives or retention bonuses to local postsecondary or upskilling programs enabling wraparound support that includes emergency aid or proactive employers supporting employees’ education with tuition assistance. All these programs require best-in-class systems and expertise to support administration and execution. 

NLC will host a webinar featuring Scholarship America, the nation’s largest private scholarship administrator, and Beam, a cloud-based administrator of various workforce development and cash assistance programs, to learn how they have helped cities build their talent pipelines and ensure scholarships, incentive programs and emergency aid make an impact in cultivating local workforces.
