WorkForce Innovation & Opportunity Act – Business Services

WIOA Youth Services

Introduction
Future Workforce Alliance, serving as the Local Workforce Board of Snohomish County, and Workforce Snohomish have embarked on a journey to lead the development of a new Gold Standard Youth Employment and Training model in Snohomish County. We are seeking entities both funded through this proposal process and through collaborations, to build not only a Gold Standard youth model, but a Gold Standard youth system. We understand it will take extensive time to build this comprehensive model and stand ready to fully support the winning bidder(s)/contractor(s) of this Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth Title I grant through the extensive transition.

The winning bidder(s) will have provided evidence through their proposal and the rating committee’s question and answer session, that they will be able to build and implement Gold Standard youth programming and service delivery.

Future Workforce Alliance and Workforce Snohomish operate transparent research, evidence-based programs that include the voice of stakeholders, community members, and the customer during the development, implementation, and continuous improvement processes. These are exciting times in the development of Youth Employment and Training programs in Snohomish County. We appreciate your interest in being a bidder/contractor and/or contributor in building a new Gold Standard youth model.

The complete RFP can be found at the top of this page. Related forms and other documents associated with this RFP are located at workforcesnohomish.org/forms

WorkForce Innovation & Opportunity Act – Business Services

 

>>>Access all application documents and supplemental resources by clicking here.

On March 15, 2021, the Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County (WDC) released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the provision of business services within the WorkSource Seattle-King County system. Services will be funded in accordance with resources from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). See application and funding information.

This RFP represents an important step toward transforming the region’s workforce development system. In order to further the WDC’s regional equity and social justice goals, the WDC seeks to integrate more community-based service providers into the network of services that are available through the WorkSource Seattle-King County System. Proposals will be required to demonstrate how services will be provided to demographic groups that are traditionally underserved and concentrate on prioritizing job quality and jobs with career pathways embedded, regardless of the wage or level of experience required.

As we look towards procuring funds through this open, public RFP process, we are inviting local organizations to learn about goals for our workforce system, how to apply for this funding, and encourage partnerships to those ends.

COVID-19 Resources

Washington state continues to meet the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts upon our economy. The 12 Local Workforce Development Boards have adapted to this crisis by making all business and worker services available remotely. Our WorkSource Centers and staff are meeting with customers over the phone and online to provide information and assist with navigating a path forward. We are also partnering with state agencies and local government, as well as community-based organizations to connect to a wide array of resources designed to help weather this crisis and move forward in our state’s economic recovery.

About

wwa-logo-shadowed

The Washington Workforce Association (WWA) is a nonprofit non-partisan membership organization of the twelve Workforce Development Councils (WDC) of Washington State. The twelve WDCs are business led boards that coordinate and leverage workforce investments and strategies with stakeholders from education, economic development, labor and community based organizations to advance the economic health of their respective communities through a skilled and competitive workforce.

WDCs are certified by the Governor of Washington State with agreement from local elected officials under the requirements of the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which calls for a comprehensive system to provide America with a highly skilled workforce that competes in the global economy.

WWA provides information, training, tools, and recommendations to policy makers, workforce development professionals, Workforce Development Council members, and the community at large to help make informed decisions about how to invest in workforce strategies. WWA works in partnership with other statewide, regional and national organizations advocating for a coordinated, funded system focused on the needs of job seekers and businesses.
