Donnelly Success Grant

The Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund (WCTF) invests in demand-driven programs designed by industry sector partnerships that train and place unemployed and underemployed workers. The purpose of the Fund is to support the development and implementation of employer and worker-responsive programs to enhance worker skills, incomes, productivity, and retention, and to increase the quality and competitiveness of Massachusetts businesses. WCTF programs serve people across the Commonwealth whose life experiences and circumstances make it difficult for them to succeed in employment without targeted support. They include individuals who are underemployed and rely on aid from public benefits to support their families, individuals who have been disconnected from the workforce for a long period, and people who have not been able to complete formal schooling.
2018 年,马萨诸塞州立法机构投票决定重新命名 WCTF 的赠款奖项,以纪念已故参议员肯尼斯·唐纳利,他是促进英联邦劳动力机会的坚定拥护者,特别是对于那些可能缺乏经济稳定途径的人。本着这种精神,我们寻求建立由拥有深厚专业知识的当地组织提供支持的部门合作伙伴关系,旨在提升各种背景的人。 WCTF 模式使社区组织能够与雇主合作伙伴和公共劳动力系统建立和维持有效的伙伴关系,同时努力融入更公平和创新的做法,从而为英联邦更多的人带来更多的经济流动性。

Healthcare Workforce Hub Initiative

地区MassHire 劳动力委员会正在与当地医疗保健雇主以及教育和培训提供者合作,通过为希望为有持续需求的职业做准备的成年人提供工作培训和支持来满足雇主对技术工人的需求。

HealthCare HUB受助者招募和培训失业和就业不足的候选人担任入门级职位,并支持旨在为入门级和中级医疗保健人员提供职业发展机会的培训和其他支持。

这些雇主、教育工作者和劳动力专业人员的区域合作伙伴关系建立和加强关系,并制定以区域为重点的劳动力战略,以满足人员配备需求,并最终创建一个更具竞争力的马萨诸塞州医疗保健系统。

WCTF Program Design Grant

The Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund Program Design Grant aims to fund planning and program design activities that lead to an implementation proposal to the Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund (WCTF), Senator Donnelly Workforce Success Grants. This grant program offers funding to provide training and placement programs for (1) unemployed and/or (2) underemployed individuals, as well as training and advancement programs for (3) incumbent workers. In all three options, the training program must be designed to prepare individuals for occupational priorities identified through the Regional Workforce Skills Planning Initiative regional blueprint process. Quality Technical Assistance and Communities of Practice offered by WCTF program staff are an integral component of this program.

Prospective applicants must review the WCTF-Donnelly implementation Request for Proposals (RFP) before seeking Program Design funding. Additionally, applicants are expected to submit their application for the WCTF-Donnelly implementation grant within six months of concluding their Program Design grant.
