EDSI operates over 120 contracts across the country – check out our locations page to learn more! Primary funding sources for our programs include: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and grant funding.

With any awarded contract, whether rural or urban, gaining a solid understanding of the policies and guidelines that govern program services is key to our history of delivering exceptional services and meeting performance goals. We work collaboratively with funders to understand and assess current needs and design and implement strategies that will provide the greatest impact on the overall performance of the program and region. EDSI has assisted over 750,000 hard-to-serve participants based on our unique human-centered approach, strong outreach, exceptional linkages to community partners, and a commitment to work-based learning.
