    Reducing Barriers to Employment and Higher Education

    Reducing Barriers to Employment and Higher Education: What Can Counties Do to Achieve Economic Mobility for Low-Income Residents?

    Counties can create cross-sector partnerships with higher education to reduce employment and education barriers for low-income residents. Coordinating services across human services, workforce development and training and higher education programs can promote positive outcomes for adult students and job seekers who are disconnected from education and employment opportunities. Learn what your county can do to strengthen career pathways for local residents.

    NACo will soon release a Counties Supporting Post-Secondary Education Systems and Workforce Opportunities report. The report will be posted on NACo’s website here.
