Call For Ideas for Innovative Workforce Solutions, City of Phila. – Oct 15

Posted by City of Philadelphia on October 13, 2020

The Department of Commerce’s Workforce Development Division is pleased to announce the release of a Call For Ideas (CFI).

The CFI seeks proposals that identify and accelerate innovative, evidence-informed approaches to supporting un- and under-employed Philadelphians prepare for and connect to sustainable career pathways that pay a living wage.

Project proposals must clearly identify how funding will be used to address workforce challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and/or exacerbated by long-standing racial injustice.  Applicants must describe how they will intentionally identify, elevate, and address the specific challenges Black, brown, and other historically disadvantaged Philadelphia residents face when preparing for and entering the workforce.

Up to a total of $1 million will be awarded to between two (2) and five (5) project proposals.  Awards will range in size from $200,000 to $600,000 and proposed budgets will be reviewed carefully to ensure costs align to program design and projected impact.
