FTA Seeks Workforce Development Proposals
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is soliciting proposals by March 15, 2011, which demonstrate innovative workforce development practices and programs in public transportation.
Selected proposals will support products and approaches that improve the state of the practice in workforce development. Funding can be used to support new innovative programs or to innovatively augment existing workforce development efforts.
FTA has budgeted up to $1 million to support these efforts. Proposals must have a minimum threshold of $50,000 and a maximum of $500,000. FTA will accept applications targeting one or more of the four activity areas: tracked pre-employment training/preparation; recruitment and hiring; incumbent worker training and retention; and succession planning/phased retirement.
The Current Notice of Funding Availability is available here. Synopses and full announcement are posted online as opportunity FTA-2011-009-TRI.
Information about this project is available from Jarrett Stoltzfus, FTA Office of Technology.
