Fiscal Year 2016-2017
The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) is proud to announce a Notice of Grant Opportunity (NGO) for the Talent Networks for Fiscal Year 2016-2017.
To keep pace with the rapidly changing, knowledge-driven, global economy, New Jersey is investing in the development of a skilled workforce that will drive the growth of the state's key industries. New Jersey is also making investments that will help ensure that all individuals have the skills, abilities and connections to find a job and a career. To meet these interconnected goals, New Jersey is aligning its workforce investments to increase the number of individuals with an industry-valued post-secondary degree or credential through the development of high-quality employer-driven partnerships that provide career pathways for New Jersey students and job seekers.
The Talent Networks are a foundational component of this effort. Each Talent Network will gather and disseminate intelligence about the workforce needs of employers, develop high-quality employer-driven partnerships in three regions of the state, and suppor the state's efforts to provide rapid response services.
Entities that can apply for this NGO include all nonprofit organizations including industry associations and any post-secondary educational institution in New Jersey.
The Talent Network Panel Review will take place on November 16 and 17, 2015.
Take Notice that, in compliance with N.J.S.A. 52:14-34.4 et seq., the Department of Labor and Workforce Development (hereinafter "the Department" or "LWD") regularly publishes on its website at http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor all notices of fund availability pertaining to federal or state grant funds, which may be awarded by the Department.
