This $250,000 per year grant, for up to four years, will establish a healthcare workforce intermediary to champion a sustainable, market-driven workforce development program benefiting District’s residents and health care employers.

The ultimate purpose of the Partnership is to increase the number of District residents employed in the healthcare industry and to meet the staffing needs of employers in such areas as hospitals, managed care organizations, private insurers, and other healthcare providers.
