Austin, TX – Texas Mutual Insurance Company recently announcied the recipients in the second round of its 2021 request for proposal (RFP) initiative.
A total of 44 organizations have been awarded funds to support their efforts in workforce development and safety training. These grants are part of Texas Mutual’s $5 million grant funding to nonprofit organizations across the state in two categories—generational learning, and workforce development and safety training.
“We are inspired by the dedication these nonprofits have shown in the face of immense challenges over the last year and a half,” said Jackie Sekiguchi, Texas Mutual community affairs manager. “The organizations receiving this funding have been essential in providing a steady and trained workforce for their communities. We’re proud to recognize their commitment to educating and supporting the local workforce, and especially proud to be part of their continued success.”
Texas Mutual awarded grants to organizations with a focus on the following:
- Training the current and future skilled workforce in safe work practices, especially in industries or occupations at higher risk for workplace accidents
- Creating strong pathways for in-demand, middle-skill jobs
- Upskilling and reskilling adult learners using earn-and-learn initiatives
To be eligible for grant funding, organizations were required to be based in Texas, be a 501(c)(3) designated organization, and able to demonstrate they are actively delivering assistance and services to Texas communities.
