Program areas at Minnesota Chamber Foundation

Minnesota: 2030 is a study of the state's economy, designed to provide a framework for growth in the next decade and beyond. The project began in 2019. Ihs markit, a global economic forecasting firm was hired to provide economic data and analysis. The project was temporarily halted when the pandemic hit the united states/minnesota last spring, but the project is now slated for completion and release in april 2021. The non-partisan, fact based report will include actionable recommendations around labor force and workforce development; opportunities for key industry sectors, including a focus on health care and technology; and strategies to strengthen communities around key assets like child care, housing, connectivity and inclusion.
Center for workforce solutions -Minnesota can lead the nation in rethinking how public and private sector actors provide the tools necessary for workers to thrive in a changing economy. This will partly mean ensuring that all minnesotans receive at least the basic training and education they need to succeed in the workforce. But it will also mean aligning curriculum and training to the skills that are demanded in a 21st century economy, providing young people, parents, and adult workers data-driven information on the opportunities and career paths that await them. And that is the mission of the Minnesota Chamber Foundation's center for workforce solutions. The primary focus of the center in sthe business education netowrk (ben) formed in 2015. Ben is aprivate-sector solution to employers' urgent need to find skilled, qualified and ready workers for jobs available in communities across our state. Ben is driven by local employers and fueled by the engagement and partnership of students and educators. It connects employers with middle, high school and college students to make them aware of and prepare them for career opportunities in their own communities. Local employers through local chambers of commerce develop their own programs to respond to local needs. Nearly 20 local chambers are ben partners, and that number is growing.
The business environmental sustainability finance program (besfp) is a grant program of the Minnesota Chamber Foundation. The purpose of the besfp grant program is to motivate business owners to complete energy efficiency or waste reduction projects that would otherwise not get done without besfp grant. Grants of up to $3,000 may be available for pre-qualified energy efficiency and waste management projects. Besfp grant program works closely with energy smart or waste wise staff to identify projects that may qualify for a grant. Eligible projects include energy efficient projects that recieve an energy utility rebate and waste projects which result in quantifiable waste diversion (waste kept out of the municipal solid waste stream). No more than one grant per business (or business location) per calander year or for one 12-month period, will be given. Priority is given to businesses that have not received a besfp grant at any time in the past.
