H-1B Ready to Work Partnership Grants

Type: Federal
Source: US Dept. of Labor
Program: H-1B Ready to Work Partnership Grants
In keeping with the authority provided by Congress under ACWIA, grants under this program will be awarded to a partnership of private and public sector entities. Grants will be awarded to the lead applicant, which will serve as the grantee and have overall fiscal and administrative responsibility for the grant. Eligible lead applicants must be public or non-profit organizations that: 1) meet the definition of one of the three types of eligible entities described below; and 2) apply in partnership with at least one representative of each of the three types of eligible entities (including the lead applicant), which collectively form the ďprimary partnership.Ē An eligible entity cannot serve as more than one type of entity for the purpose of meeting the requirements to include three types of entities in the primary partnership.¬†

At least one entity in the primary partnership or an optional partner will serve the 
function of what is generally referred to as a workforce intermediary, having expertise and credibility with employers and workers in the H-1B industry(ies) and/or occupations targeted through the project, as well as the capacity to manage a multi-partner and complex initiative. A range of organizations can serve in the intermediary role, including any of the following: Workforce Investment Boards, community colleges, labor unions, industry associations, community-based organizations, non-profit workforce agencies, and state and local government agencies.
We are interested in funding programs that can effectively recruit and serve long-term unemployed workers, and that are built around a comprehensive, up-front assessment resulting in customized interventions across three tracks: 1) intensive coaching and other short-term, specialized services culminating in direct job placement into middle and high-skilled jobs; 2) short-term training leading to employment; and 3) accelerated skills training along a career pathway that leads to an industry-recognized credential and employment. 

Within these tracks, we are especially interested in programs that include employer-based activities with an earnings component, such as on-the-job training, and other paid work experience, as well as specialized participant services that address the unique barriers facing long-term unemployed workers, such as financial counseling and behavioral health counseling. 

These programs will include tangible commitments from employers and other partners to provide employment opportunities, technical skills training, and on-the-job experience and other paid work experience for H-1B occupations, while also addressing the barriers, income needs, and support needs unique to long-term unemployed workers. As a pre-condition to be considered for Ready to Work funding, all applicants must have at least three employers or a regional industry association with at least three employers actively engaged in the project.
