Framework for an Equity-Centered National Subsidized Employment Program

by Caitlin C. Schnur; Chris Warland; Melissa Young

Jan 12, 2021

Developed in partnership with 16 national organizations, this framework lays out an equity-centered national subsidized employment program that can support an inclusive COVID-19 economic recovery. This framework describes a national subsidized employment program designed to quickly and efficiently get people working when it is safe to do so as well as ensure that people who have been left out of and left behind by our labor market have access to economic opportunity. This framework explicitly centers racial and gender equity.
