Detroit LISC is excited to help bring two valuable training opportunities for nonprofits to Detroit in the Fall of 2015 to help organizations build capacity and strenghten their real estate development skills.
LISC, with funding from the Social Innovation Fund, would like to announce the opening of a grant competition for its Bridges to Career Opportunities (BCO) program. LISC will use a competitive process to select and fund nonprofit organizations that can effectively operate contextualized “bridge” programming, and connections to skills training for low-income unemployed and underemployed neighborhood residents, in which individuals are supported by career coaches and financial coaches through the process.
