Grants of up to $35,000 and grants of up to $50,000 to Virginia community colleges, school divisions, and literacy organizations for workforce readiness programs. Priority will be given to proposals that support students from populations with high rates of unemployment, including youth, single parents, and immigrants.
The PluggedInVA grant program is built upon a career pathways approach that prepares adults with the workforce training and education they will need to succeed in high-demand, high-wage careers. In partnership with local employers and postsecondary and training institutions, the program provides concurrent academic instruction and industry-specific technical training while simultaneously supporting students with career coaching in a cohort model. Learners in a PluggedInVA cohort earn a secondary credential (if needed), strengthen their academic skills for higher education and training, and earn digital literacy and occupational credentials. Working closely with local employers, students participate in work-based learning and are prepared for employment within a career pathway.
Eligible applicants should propose activities that integrate education, workforce preparation (as defined in WIOA), and industry-specific technical training within the PluggedInVA model for learners eligible for adult education services. Applicants should propose to braid funding with Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) grants, either adult basic or secondary education, correctional education, or integrated English literacy and civics education funds. In this way, the individuals are eligible to be considered adult education students in the state management information system. For eligible individuals, see page 4 of the application document in Supporting Documents below.
