An initiative of Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development

Overview

The Re-Entry Workforce Development Demonstration Program is an initiative of Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rosalin Acosta in support of Governor Baker’s effort to improve workforce outcomes among individuals returning to their communities after incarceration.

This program aims to increase the number of adult returning citizens successfully placed into career track, sustainable wage employment opportunities. We are creating a statewide network of industry-focused training programs with expertise serving this population–no matter what region of MA a returning citizen is released to, there will be re-entry support. This program will also increase the number of Black & Brown-owned and operated business partners, community-based organizations, and training partners applying for and receiving funds to work with this population.
