PROPOSITION 39 PRE-APPRENTICESHIP SUPPORT, TRAINING AND PLACEMENT GRANT 2.0
Prop 39 2.0 will fund grant projects that fill critical workforce skill gaps by creating opportunities for disadvantaged California job seekers to earn industry-valued credentials and enter into pre-apprenticeship leading to apprenticeship, or direct employment in the energy efficiency or construction sectors.
The first round of Proposition 39 grants (Prop 39 1.0) was announced in February 2014, and resulted in ten innovative projects (click here for a full list of grantees). Prop 39 2.0 will build upon these successes, and solicit new strategies for California’s green/clean economy.
Project Goals:– Train at risk youth, women, veterans, and other disadvantaged job seekers in green job skills- Create structured pathways to apprenticeship- Build the energy-efficiency workforce- Align systems and leverage funding to optimize results and reduce service duplication- Implement, replicate, and/or scale successful innovations that emerged from Prop 39 1.0 projects
The Prop 39 2.0 RFA was revised to extend the application due date for Development applications to June 30, 2016. Please see page 12 of the Addendum #1 RFA for this change.
