What is the FARE Grant?

The grant funded program allows the New York State Department of Labor to partner with non-profit organizations, community organizations, and other state agencies to provide outreach, distribute information, assist women, connect workers to services and empower women through information.

We aim to help women become focal points for rights, benefits, and assistance in their own communities.

YWCA Jamestown seeks to connect with individuals and agencies to present information on NYS employee rights.
