Grants to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, non-governmental entities, workforce development boards, educational organizations, economic development entities, business associations, and labor organizations for collaborative workforce and economic development initiatives.

Pennsylvania is seeking industry partnerships that improve the economic prosperity and prepare the Commonwealth’s workforce for the jobs of today and tomorrow.  The Industry Partnership program requires businesses within a targeted industry partnering to strengthen their industry through training initiatives, recruitment strategies, raising career awareness, and working together to address additional challenges identified by the businesses.  

This Notice of Grant Availability (NGA) seeks applications to support Industry Partnership initiatives across PA that work to identify workforce, education & training, and economic development needs, coordinate regional teams to support industry needs, identify public and community resources to address industry identified needs and increase collaboration among businesses within a targeted industry sector.

The goal is to increase regional collaboration to support business needs within an industry sector.  Applicants must articulate a clear plan to evaluate the effectiveness of their proposed strategies to address business identified priorities.

Additionally, ensuring the participation of diverse businesses and reaching underrepresented populations in order to increase equity is a priority of this grant program.  Applicants are reminded that equity is distinguished from equality; whereas equality means providing the same to all, equity means recognizing that not all start from the same place and steps must be taken to address existing imbalances.
