Education and Training Administration Workforce Innovation Grants

Posted by EKDilla on Tue 27 of Dec., 2011 14:30 EST
The Department of Labor announced (external link) on December 22, 2011 that approximately $98.5 million dollars would be available for Workforce Innovation Grants. In addition to receiving funding for programs that support and evaluate workforce development strategies such as innovative training programs, grantees will be given technical assistance. This is a great opportunity to improve training for DSPs!

State workforce agencies, local workforce investment boards, and other institutions eligible for WIA Section 166 grants are encouraged to apply.

More information is available About the Grant (external link) and DOL Grants (external link).
