The H-1B America's Promise Grantee Convening provided comprehensive technical assistance, materials, presentations, shared learning experiences, and hands-on demonstrations to support the implementation and administration of the America’s Promise grant program. The convening focused on topics relevant to grantees in the first year of their grant, including building regional workforce partnerships and developing a pipeline of workers to fill regional employer demand.
