Please note for 2020-21, Workforce Development Fund deployment is significantly changed. This is a non-competitive funding opportunity for Washington state community and technical colleges.
In order to reach the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges’ (SBCTC) goal that at least 70 percent of Washington adults will earn a postsecondary credential, colleges must be engaged in ambitious efforts to make data-informed decisions, engage diverse stakeholders, leverage a multitude of resources, respond to labor market gaps, and promote life-long learning.
Required by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V), the comprehensive local needs assessment (CLNA) must be completed biennially by all Perkins recipients and utilized to inform their local Perkins Plan applications. Recognizing the important role of CLNAs in advancing the system's vision and goals for equity and access, and further acknowledging the extraordinary costs to colleges associated with setting up the necessary systems to support CLNAs over time, SBCTC is making available state Workforce Development Funding in FY21 (2020-2021 academic year) for colleges to use for such extraordinary costs.
A Washington State community or technical college that will initiate or continue comprehensive local needs assessment (CLNA) activities related to Perkins V funding during the FY21 (2020-21 academic year) may opt-in to this funding opportunity.
