Our new approach to grant monitoring support services for workforce development
18 Feb 2020
One of the most important things we do in workforce development at the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is develop partnerships. Millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars flow from DEED to nonprofit partners in workforce development across Minnesota every year. These organizations work hard to help get Minnesotans into our workforce.
Making sure we’re great partners to these nonprofits is an important priority of ours at DEED, which is why we’re revamping our process for grants administration under the Walz/Flanagan Administration. We’ve heard from many partners that DEED has been too onerous in our grants management, and that the process is too complex.
