Funding for this initiative is part of a $10.9 million grant the Walmart Foundation made to The Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership. The two-year grant program is the largest investment to date as part of Walmart and the Walmart Foundation’s Opportunity Initiative, which aims to increase the economic mobility of workers in retail and adjacent sectors by working with nonprofits, educational institutions and government agencies to make it easier for frontline workers to move faster into roles with more responsibility.
