Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit and community organizations, trade associations, for-profits, postsecondary institutions, apprenticeship programs, and secondary schools for integrated training and education services to individuals facing barriers to employment. Funding is intended to support services that help mitigate the effects of barriers to employment and successful program completion. Participants who are twenty years of age or older will be eligible to receive program services.

DOES is seeking organizations to deliver quality, structured and measurable training and supportive training services (i.e. intensive case management), basic skills training (i.e. math, reading or spoken English), as well as certification-based occupational skills training or non-credentialed industry-specific training.

DOES DSI oversees programs designed to serve District residents experiencing multiple barriers to obtaining permanent employment. Barriers may include previous incarceration, history of homelessness or substance abuse, and/or educational deficiencies. DOES DSI’ programs, which include Project Empowerment (PE), DC Career Connections (DCCC), Back 2 Work 50+ DC and the DC Jail Work Readiness Program, are designed according to the nationally recognized transitional jobs network program model. The programs provide job readiness and life skills training, short-term subsidized work experience, as well as ancillary services with the goal of providing program participants with the tools and experience necessary to obtain permanent, unsubsidized employment.

Program Design Model - In addition to the core instructional programming which should be explained in the program narrative, the applicant should also include the following program elements in the service delivery model:

1. Recruitment and Enrollment
2. Orientation Services
3. Case Management and Support
4. Post Training Completion Assessment
5. Job Placement
6. Minimum Staffing Requirements
7. Branding/Marketing
