Informational Webinar: Good Jobs Challenge Grant Application for the Capital Region
On January 5, 2022, Valley Vision and the Sacramento Employment Training Agency (SETA) hosted an Informational Webinar on a Good Jobs Challenge Grant Application for the Capital Region.
What is the Good Jobs Challenge?
The Good Jobs Challenge provides $500 million to collaborative skills training systems and programs, and encourages efforts to reach historically underserved populations and areas, communities of color, women, and other groups facing labor market barriers. These systems and partnerships will create and implement industry-led training programs, designed to provide skills for and connect unemployed or underemployed workers to existing and emerging job opportunities.
How is the Capital Region approaching this opportunity?
The Capital Region will be submitting an application for the Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Good Jobs Challenge. The application will be focused on the Information, Communications and Technology sector, to support technology positions across industries connected to the Prosperity Strategy, the region’s federally-designated Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. The region served will include Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, and El Dorado counties.
