The purpose of Accelerator 11 is to scale and replicate previous successful projects supported by the CWDB and potentially connect them to existing High Road Training Partnerships.
The California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) and the Employment Development Department are pleased to announce the availability of up to $3 million in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funds to replicate and scale previous successful projects that accelerate employment and re-employment strategies for California job seekers through the Workforce Accelerator Fund 11 grant program.
The Workforce Accelerator Fund is supported by the California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) in coordination with the California Employment Development Department (EDD) with Department of Labor funding totaling $3,000,000. All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and to any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.
Accelerator 11 seeks to fund previous successful CWDB-funded projects that incorporate High Road principles to improve job quality, create upward mobility, and bridge workforce programs to quality jobs for workers from disadvantaged or low-income communities in a continuing effort to build a better California for All.
