About the Minneapolis Employment & Training Program (METP)
METP administers a variety of employment and training programs under the direction of the Mayor, City Council, and Minneapolis Workforce Council. METP is the administrative entity/staff to the Minneapolis Workforce Council. City programs under the oversight of the Workforce Council include services for low-income Adult, Dislocated Workers, MFIP recipients, and Youth. In Minneapolis, these services are delivered to job seekers and businesses by community-based organizations which have been competitively evaluated and selected based on their ability to effectively serve target groups and achieve employment-related outcomes, including both placement and support for retention in employment.
