This advocacy resource makes the case for why Congress must enact an equity-centered national subsidized employment program as a part of COVID-19 economic recovery legislation, with a special focus on how subsidized employment strategies can benefit jobseekers experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. This resource was produced in partnership among Heartland Alliance, the Center for Law & Social Policy (CLASP), and the National Youth Employment Coalition. Subsidized employment advocates can use this resource to inform visits with elected officials about why subsidized employment must be a part of building back a better, stronger, and more inclusive and equitable economy in the wake of the COVID-19 recession.
In response to the economic devastation brought on by the COVID-19 recession and the persistent economic disparities faced by Black, Latinx, Indigenous, immigrant, and other workers facing barriers to employment, the undersigned organizations call on Congressional leadership to ensure that the budget reconciliation bill being negotiated in Congress includes robust investments in workforcedevelopment and training, including a robust equity-centered national subsidized employment program.
