Purpose

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) focuses on serving out of school youth and targeted youth populations through youth development activities that will reinforce positive social skills in youth.  The legislation mandates strong ties with the business community, not only as employers, but also in an expanded role as advisors, funders, trainers and economic developers.  The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act places an increased emphasis on work experience activities, serving individuals with disabilities and veterans.  The intent is to develop a skilled future labor force. Eligible participants must be between 16 and 24 years old and meet specific eligibility criteria as noted in the RFP.

Funding available to serve youth in the four-county region for the period July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 is approximately $400,000.00 (subject to official notification from the New York State Department of Labor).  Please note the 14 elements of the legislation that can be funded (see RFP).  Programs need to show how each element will be provided/made available by partnering with other agencies if necessary and submit a copy of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for each partner agency stating which element(s) they will provide.
