This map depicts the headquarter locations of DOL grantees. To note, grantees often operate nationally in multiple states, so the total number of grantees listed by state may be smaller than the overall number of grantees currently in that state or providing services. This map is routinely updated to reflect currently active grantees. For questions or corrections, please reach out to ogm@dol.gov.
