Congratulations to the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation of Boston for winning the Good Jobs Challenge. We provided insight, advice, and recommendations on all elements of the proposal narrative, budget, and other supporting documentation on how to strengthen and possibly re-write sections of the application to align with the solication/RFP, which led them to a $23M win.
The Good Jobs Challenge is administered by the Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration and will enable communities across the country to invest in innovative approaches to workforce development that will secure job opportunities for more than 50,000 Americans.
The 32 winning projects were selected from a competitive pool of 509 applicants. By partnering with labor unions, community colleges, industry, and other stakeholders, these projects will solve local talent needs and increase the supply of trained workers and help workers secure jobs in 15 key industries that are essential to U.S. supply chains, global competitiveness, and regional development. This funding will advance a broad range of sectors—including agriculture and food production, energy and resilience, healthcare, manufacturing, and information technology—jumpstarting the design, development, implementation, and expansion of training programs that are tailored specifically to each community.
