Best Start Region 2 RFQ Deadline
The purpose of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is to solicit proposals from South Los Angeles organizations to develop and implement innovative workforce development programming and services focused on increasing equity and policy and systems change for residents of Best Start Region 2. The workforce development initiative programs seek to address the gaps in services and frameworks that lead to the disengagement of low-income communities of color in traditional and non-traditional pipelines to employment opportunities.
Solicited proposals must be prepared to serve people in a manner that successfully connects them to essential resources, skills and employment. Many individuals accessing publicly funded workforce programs have been disproportionately harmed by discriminatory practices which serve to both exclude them from economic opportunity and devalue the assets they bring to the labor market. To begin to address these inequities, CHC prioritizes and encourages applicants to propose deliberate, targeted strategies to ensure full and equitable access for these individuals. We highly encourage applicants to highlight ways in which their program advances employment equity to help address economic disparities.

Wednesday, October 13th at 3:00-4:30pm
