Coming this Fall: Challenge Grants and Incentive Grants
to Expand and Enhance Emerging Worker Programs

In its mission statement, the Emerging Worker Sub-Committee of the New York State Workforce Investment Board has made a commitment to "ensure that all New York’s youth are better prepared for employment...by exposing them to a greater array of potential career opportunities, including current demand occupations."

In response, the New York State Department of Labor will be issuing two new Requests for Proposals to enhance and expand programs for youth.

  1. Incentive Grants for Employers

  2. Challenge Grants to local Workforce Investment Boards
