In this second session of the two-part technical assistance series, Workforce Innovation Fund (WIF) grantees discussed their experiences in identifying what to sustain and how they planned to sustain it.


Through the shared experiences, learn how to determine what of your project is worthy of sustaining and how it might connect with state, regional and local workforce and economic development priorities.  Gain insight from the experience of the Round 1 WIF grantees who have successfully sustained all or parts of their grant.
