About this Event
On December 15th, DRA released an RFP to solicit applications for grants under the 2023 Delta Workforce Grant Program (DWP). DRA is making available $6,000,000 for DWP project grants, with awards ranging between $50,000-$450,000. To help strengthen applicants knowledge, DRA is hosting an in person Technical Assistance Workshop.
The purpose of the DWP Pre-Award Technical Assistance Workshop is to provide attendees:
• A comprehensive overview of the RFP to help develop competitive applications;
• An example of a successful workforce training program from a DWP grantee who will discuss strategies for building innovative partnerships to attain positive workforce outcomes in rural areas;
• Information on how to build an effective workforce development program, create a strong workforce pipeline attractive for existing and prospective businesses, and how to articulate that vision into a competitive grant proposal.
DWP supports projects and initiatives that create a more vibrant economic future for the Delta and Alabama Black Belt regions by expanding opportunities to recruit, train, and retain a diverse and local workforce, aligning workforce and economic development strategies, creating sustainable talent pipelines, establishing or enhancing locally/regionally significant sector-based partnerships, and supporting enhanced workforce productivity through investments in innovative programming or services.
