Workforce Development grants will support workforce development organizations (including intermediaries) in the metropolitan area. Funding will be provided for:
- Capacity building (infrastructure investments that enable the organization to expand, sustain and manage its services more effectively).
- Program development (investments in new aspects of the program that will enhance the training and placement experience.
- Research and evaluation (to understand the impact of job training programs and of public policy in this area).
Note: preference will be given to job training organizations that offer hard skills and life skills training; have support services available to trainees; focus on placing adults in full-time competitive employment; provide post-placement support; and collect data about graduation, placement, starting salaries and retention.
