The National Fund for Workforce Solutions: An Innovative Public/Private Funding Collaborative

Posted by - On March 11, 2008 (EST)

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. Through these investments, the NFWS expects to place and/or advance at least 50,000 people in career-oriented jobs, leverage more than $200 million in local funding, and provide services to at least 1,000 employers to help them recruit, train and advance new and incumbent workers. 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.

This webinar will provide an overview of the NFWS, share examples of how the public workforce systems in San Diego and Baltimore have been leaders in their regional collaboratives, and discuss future opportunities to become involved in this initiative. Participants are encouraged to refer to Training and Employment Notice 15-07 issued on October 16, 2007 and for background information.
