Commonwealth Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the FY 19 Re-Entry Workforce Development Demonstration Program Request for Proposals.

The Re-Entry Workforce Development Demonstration Program is an initiative of Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rosalin Acosta in support of Governor Baker’s effort to improve workforce outcomes among individuals returning to their communities after incarceration (i.e. returning citizens). Commonwealth Corporation is seeking applications from partnerships that have demonstrated experience, success and current capacity in providing occupationally-focused training and placement programs for returning citizens and can provide services immediately upon grant award. The target population includes individuals who will be released within one month of a program start date or individuals who were released within 6 months of enrolling in a program or a combination or both. Applicants must demonstrate that the services they propose to provide will result in job placements for participants by end of the grant period.
