RFA Release Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2017
RFA Submission Deadline: Friday, March 17, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
The purpose of the District of Columbia Workforce Investment Council (DC WIC) Targeted Industry Partnership grant is to promote and support partnerships between employers and training providers that will increase the alignment between business needs and workforce development strategies in order for businesses to have access to appropriately skilled employees, and to ensure job seekers have the skills, training and support they need to meet employer demand in vital sectors of the District of Columbia’s economy.
DC WIC seeks grant applications for projects which will provide eligible District residents (unemployed and underemployed) with the applied skills and experience that significantly increase their employability through work-based learning. The WIC seeks to invest in innovative and cost-effective education and training models with clear measurable outcomes that demonstrate the ability for programs to be scaled or rapidly adapted across areas of the District, and foster greater connectivity between educations, skills and experience required for employment in the greater District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area.
Please note that all applications must be submitted electronically. Incomplete applications or those submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.
An information meeting on the RFA will be held on March 3, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Workforce Investment Council, located at 2235 Shannon Place, SE, Suite 3031, Washington, DC, 20020. Attendance is strongly encouraged.
