The National Fund for Workforce Solutions (NFWS) is a public/private funding collaborative that aims to strengthen and expand regional sectoral workforce partnerships. The NFWS aims to invest $50 million in 30 or more regional and rural collaborative across the country between 2007 and 2011.

This initiative is funded by the Annie E. Casey, Ford, Hitachi, the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg, and John S. and James L. Knight Foundations in collaboration with the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. National strategic partners include the Council on Foundations, Jobs for the Future, and The United Way of America.
