The Families and Workers Fund participated in a White House event in which President Biden announced the results of the Talent Pipeline Challenge, a call to action for philanthropy, employers, unions, workforce development providers, and state and local governments to help grow the infrastructure workforce and ensure all infrastructure jobs are good jobs. The Families and Workers Fund, along with partners at the What Works Plus Collaborative and America Achieves, has been proud to collaborate with the White House on mobilizing philanthropy in response to the Challenge, and we are thrilled to together announce aligned grants totaling more than $50 million as well as new initiatives that will mobilize an additional $20 million.
