About Our Areas of Work
We organize our work into three areas to help low-income youth & adults:

Maximizing Federal Support and Opportunity for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Jobs for the Future

This report identifies 15 opportunities to increase federal funding for the Commonwealth through new and existing programs. Many of these opportunities would also increase services for some of our most vulnerable citizens.

The report highlights how Massachusetts can leverage emerging trends in federal funding and recommends structural changes in state government to maximize these opportunities. JFF produced this report, commissioned by the Barr Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, the Boston Foundation, and Tufts Health Plan Foundation. The funding examples highlighted in the report are organized into five categories: Social Safety Net; Health Care; Workforce Development; Reauthorizations; and Community Development. Examples include: foster care adoption incentives, lead poisoning reimbursement, and diversity in the highway construction workforce.
