This session is part of the 2019 H-1B Grantee Conference: Strengthening America’s Talent Pipeline.  Participants will learn strategies for sustaining their program components after the grant funding ends from experts and grantees.



Participants will learn about leveraging funds for program sustainability including tips for partnering with foundations.  The second half of this session will focus on a panel of current and former grantees who will share lessons learned from their own sustainability journey.  You will learn strategies for building relationships with the community and employers, incorporating career pathways into training and employment plans, and securing supportive services including child care.
