Contracts for services to Rhode Island schools, school districts, nonprofit agencies, IHEs, municipalities, and private employers and organizations for projects to improve academic and employment success for young people. Funding is intended for projects with innovative programming and comprehensive services. Applicants must demonstrate how they intend to transition WIOA-eligible youth residents of the Greater Rhode Island workforce area, ages 16-24 years, into post-secondary education and training or employment under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I.

The Governor’s Workforce Board (GWB) is interested in awarding contracts to organizations with a track record of providing services to low-income youth in Rhode Island while maintaining high standards of program management and accountability. Preference will be given to community-based organizations that are physically located in the Greater Rhode Island area.

The GWB will give priority to proposals that incorporate partnerships and collaborations under this RFP. Partnerships focusing on a seamless integration of programs and services are strongly encouraged to ensure that there are no gaps in the continuum of programs and services. Partnerships are urged to include a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including but not limited to employers, institutions of higher education, One-Stops, adult basic education providers, and community-based organizations. To that extent, the GWB encourages applicants to partner and clearly define each partner’s strengths, roles, and responsibilities under this RFP. Each applicant may apply as the lead applicant for only one proposal, but may budget funds towards the partners’ services. Applicants may be members of more than one partnership under this RFP.
