Taos Job Fair Puts a Dent in Workforce Shortage

  • Local Champion: Taos County Chamber of Commerce
  • Date Funded: September 27, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $3,000

In the wake of the pandemic, many Taos businesses are still struggling to recruit workers and remain short-staffed. It’s a problem small business owners have brought to the attention of the Town of Taos and the local chamber of commerce, which decided to host a job fair in October. In order to make that event a success, organizers needed advertising support to get as many potential workers as possible to the fair. LOR’s funding supported this and also helped the organizers purchase food and beverages to further attract jobseekers to the event—which saw nearly 100 attendees and hopefully put a dent in a long-standing workforce problem.

This project is fiscally sponsored by Taos Community Foundation.
