Prop 39 Request for Applications

The California Workforce Investment Board is pleased to announce the following competitive grant opportunity:

Approximately $3 million for grants is made available through the Proposition 39 Pre-Apprenticeship Support, Training and Placement program. The grants will fund projects that fill critical workforce skills gaps by creating opportunities for California job seekers to earn industry-valued credentials and enter into apprenticeship or direct employment in the energy efficiency or construction sector. In addition, the California Workforce Investment Board is interested in funding projects that further advance the goals of the State Strategic Plan and build workforce system infrastructure and capacity through:
  • Collaboration among regional partners in the development and delivery of “earn and learn” and pre-apprenticeship models in the energy efficiency/construction sector.
  • Innovation that creates new or adapts existing approaches or accelerates application of promising practices in workforce development and skill attainment.
  • System change that utilizes these sub-grants to incentivize adoption of proven strategies and innovations that are sustained beyond the grant period. Successful projects will create or expand regional partnerships that include local workforce investment boards, community colleges, community-based organizations, labor organizations, and industry associations or coalitions of employers.
Release Date:    Friday, February 21, 2014
