The New Americans Recruitment Initiative Grant


The New Americans Recruitment Initiative pro-vides grants to local non-profit immigrant, refugee and New American organi-zations to facilitate civil service testing and work-force development train-ing. The goal is to guide residents through the City of Columbus employment opportunities and proc-esses. Council is funding a total of five grants with a maximum award of $7,500 each.
“Our city’s workforce should reflect the diversity of our neighborhoods, and that includes our vibrant and growing New Ameri-can communities,” said Councilmember Em-manuel V. Remy. “If we are to be a welcoming City for all, we help define a pathway to success for everyone.”
