California Workforce Investment Board's Workforce Accelerator Fund
This project was funded by a grant from the Workforce Accelerator Fund.
The California Workforce Investment Board and the Employment Development Department funded projects that design, develop, and implement projects that accelerate employment and re-employment strategies for California job seekers. The State Board and EDD funded projects and partnerships to create and prototype innovative strategies that bridge education and workforce gaps for targeted populations, and initial implementation of promising models and practices in workforce system service delivery infrastructure.
The 18 projects accelerate skill development, employment, and reemployment for one or more of the target populations (long-term unemployed, returning veterans, individuals with disabilities, low-income workers, disconnected youth, ex-offenders, parents involved in family reunification, and CalWORKS participants).
