The Murphy Administration announced a $10 million pilot program Feb. 7 to support unemployed and underemployed New Jerseyans trying to navigate and succeed in the labor market.
The Lifelong Learning Accounts (LiLA) program – part of the governor’s Future of Work initiative – is a two-year pilot that will provide job-coaching, training and employment support for these residents who do not have college degrees or workplace credentials. It is being coordinated in partnership between the governor’s office, the Office of Innovation, and the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL).
Managed and administered by NJDOL, the grants will provide funding to organizations that will recruit and deliver services to LiLA participants. Read more from NJ Biz.
