About the Workforce Accelerator Fund

The California Workforce Development Board and the Employment Development funded projects that design, develop, and implement projects that accelerate employment and re-employment strategies for California job seekers. The State Board and EDD will fund projects and partnerships to create and prototype innovative strategies that bridge education and workforce gaps for targeted populations, and initial implementation of promising models and practices in workforce system service delivery infrastructure.

Projects accelerate skill development, employment, and reemployment for one or more of the target populations (long-term unemployed, returning veterans, individuals with disabilities, low-income workers, CalWORKS participants, disconnected youth, ex-offenders, and immigrant job seekers).

Workforce Accelerator Fund Goals:

Improve labor market and skills outcomes for the target groups through the development of strategies that fill gaps, accelerate processes, or customize services to ensure greater access to workforce services and employment opportunities.

Implement, replicate, and scale successful innovations that emerged from previous Accelerator projects.

Create new modes for service delivery and funding alignment that can be replicated across the State and tailored to regional needs.

Leverage State investment with commitments from industry, labor, public, and community partners.
