America’s Job Centers of California Evaluation

The California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) and the Employment Development Department (EDD) are pleased to announce the availability of up to $750,000 in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds to assess and evaluate the America’s Job Center of CaliforniaSM (AJCC) system.

Created by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, and continued in 2014 under the WIOA, AJCCs bring together local, state, private, and public entities to provide “one-stop” services to Californians in search of employment opportunities, work-related training, and education, while also serving as a resource to connect employers with qualified workers. WIOA significantly transformed the workforce system in California and, as a result, the performance of the AJCC system needs to be evaluated.

This RFA is intended for organizations with experience in workforce evaluation to provide feedback to the CWDB, the EDD and the Labor and Workforce Development Agency. The goal of AJCC evaluation and assessment is to ensure the AJCC system continues to meet the needs of its stakeholders at all levels, and has the ability to support future workforce development service delivery models.
