GRANTS FOR 2005


Solicitation for Grant Applications - Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) Initiative (SGA/DFA PY-05-04).

    In the new global economy, talent development is a key factor in our nation's economic competitiveness. To stay ahead of global competition, we must identify strategies to further integrate workforce and economic development with education at the regional level - where companies, workers, researchers, entrepreneurs and governments come together to create a competitive advantage.

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) fully supports the development of a regional, integrated approach to workforce and economic development and education. To further this goal, we are announcing the Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) Initiative. The initiative will provide regions with funding and ongoing technical assistance and support from a cadre of experts to implement a transformational approach to their workforce and economic development systems at the regional level.
