ETA Announces Three System-Building Competitions to Expand Customer Access and Build Capacity of CBOs/FBOs to Participate in the One-Stop Delivery System
Apr 17, 2002
Through an announcement in the April 17 Federal Register, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) announces the availability of funds under three separate competitions to award grants to States, intermediaries, and small private non-profit organizations. These awards have three important objectives: (1) to increase the number of faith-based and community-based organizations serving as committed and active partners in the One-Stop delivery system, (2) expand the access of faith-based and community-based organizations' clients and customers to the services offered by the nation's One-Stops; and (3) identify, document, showcase and replicate successful instances of faith- and community-based involvement in our system-building.

A total of $9.9 million has been reserved for States; a total of $5.0 million for intermediaries (non-profit, community, and/or faith-based organizations with connections to grassroots faith-based and community organizations with the ability to connect those organizations to the nation's workforce development system in more than one service area); and, a total of $500,000 has been reserved for small non-profit organizations.
