As reflected in the Solicitation for Implementation Grant Proposals, DLLR encourages Partnerships
to leverage other funding streams in order to maximize the investment of the Partnership and of the
State. To that end, below are links to various federal programs that may be useful to EARN
Partnerships and Partners.
- Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training
initiative, U.S. Department of Labor:
- TAACCCT provides community colleges and other eligible institutions of higher education
with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training
programs that can be completed in two years or less, are suited for workers who are eligible
for training under the TAA for Workers program, and prepare program participants for employment
in high-wage, high-skill occupations.
- Ready to Work initiative, U.S. Department of Labor:
- Will “utilize approximately $150 million in revenues from the H-1B visa program to support
high performing partnerships between employers, non-profit organizations and America's public
workforce system that will help provide long-term unemployed individuals with the range of services,
training, and access they need to fill middle and high-skill jobs.”
The U.S. Department of Labor expects to release grant funding in mid-2014.
Program, U.S. Department of Labor:
- Provides federal grant funding for alternative education programs that assist youth who are
often significantly behind in basic skills, in obtaining a high school diploma or GED credential.
DLLR will continue to monitor potential sources of Federal funding for training partnerships, and
will update these links with any new programs if and when we become aware of them. While DLLR will
consider other funding streams as one element of our evaluation of Proposals, applicants are not
required to utilize sources such as these to be eligible for EARN funding.
