What is The Workforce Innovation Fund?
The Workforce Innovation Fund ("the Fund") is one of several new Federal grant programs in which grantor agencies support projects that seek to design evidence-based program strategies.

In support of this goal, the Administration is seeking new ways to remove administrative, statutory, and regulatory barriers and enable a closer alignment and integration of agencies and programs with overlapping missions and clients.
ETA has announced two separate grant solicitations under the Workforce Innovation Fund:
