Austin, TX – Texas Mutual Insurance Company recently announced the recipients in the second round of its 2023 request for proposal (RFP) initiative. Nearly 60 organizations have been awarded a total of nearly $4 million in funds to support their efforts in workforce development and safety training.
These grants are part of Texas Mutual’s larger commitment of $8 million in grant funding to nonprofit organizations across the state in two categories—generational learning for working families, and workforce development and safety training.
“We recognize that empowering these nonprofits with grants is an investment in the future for more resilient communities and a stronger workforce for Texas,” said Jackie Sekiguchi, Texas Mutual community affairs manager. “Each organization inspires us through their dedication to workforce development and safety training.”
Grant recipients were awarded for their 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 in the required focus areas.
