Posted by Ben Seigel - On October 29, 2014 (EST)

On September 24, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor announced $50.7 million in Workforce Innovation Fund grants to improve federal job training programs. The grants will be used to deliver services more efficiently, facilitate cooperation across federal and state workforce programs and funding streams, and expand partnerships with specific employers or industry sectors to develop programs that reflect current and future skill needs.

Eleven grants, ranging from $2.9 million to nearly $12 million were awarded to a combination of state workforce agencies and local workforce investment boards in the second round of competition under the Workforce Innovation Fund. Approximately $171 million in grants were awarded in the first round, which included $147 million for 26 grants in July 2012 and $24 million for two Pay for Success grants in October 2013.
