The Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN) and General Relief Opportunity for Work (GROW) are L.A. County programs that provide employment-related services to CalWORKs recipients to help them find employment, stay employed, and move on to higher paying jobs. This will ultimately lead them to self-sufficiency and independence.
Both the GAIN and GROW programs conduct Job Fairs where highly motivated and qualified participants are available for interviews, evaluation and hiring on the spot. Participation in Job Fairs and other employer-related services is free for employers. GAIN and GROW offer candidates that are prepared and available for interviews on short notice. Applicants are pre-screened to meet employers’ needs. Businesses may be eligible for a tax credit for participation.
