The Equity Target Population Fund (ETPF) solicits proposals that employ best practices to accelerate training, break down workforce system barriers, and qualify participants for current and future good-quality jobs in in-demand industry sectors. Funds will be used to design, develop, and implement projects that accelerate equity in employment for justice-involved individuals, disconnected young adults, people with disabilities, and veterans.
The ETPF Program Solicitation for Proposal (SFP) for Program Year 2022-23 (PY 22-23) aims to support innovative projects that accelerate equity in employment and develop employment strategies for populations that face significant barriers to employment. Applicants may propose to serve one or more of the following special populations: disconnected young adults, justice-involved individuals, people with disabilities, and veterans. These funds will support projects that build meaningful and sustainable industry investment and partnerships, provide work-based learning opportunities, increase equitable access to quality jobs, leverage other program funding, and provide wrap-around services that are tailored to address the equity needs for California’s most vulnerable populations that will put them on a path towards a quality job. Proposals must be received by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13, 2022. An informational webinar will be held on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at 10 a.m. Pre-registration is required.
