America’s Promise Job Driven Grant Program: The purpose of America’s Promise grant program is to strengthen the pipeline of skilled workers to expand an economic region’s middle- to high-skilled workforce within one or more prioritized industry sector(s), thereby creating economic opportunities for America’s workforce to gain the necessary skills to fill in-demand jobs and increasing the long-term competitiveness of an economic region. To help achieve this goal, the grant will provide individuals the opportunity to get high-quality, tuition free education and training that leads to in-demand and industry-recognized credentials and degrees.

A fundamental goal of America’s Promise is to accelerate the development of new and the expansion of existing 21st century regional workforce partnerships with business and industry leaders committed to providing a pipeline of skilled workers in a specific industry sector(s). These partnerships will bring together industry leaders with senior level leadership from workforce and economic development, secondary and post-secondary education, elected officials, and other important community stakeholders. To keep pace with the rapid shifts we are seeing in today’s economy, we encourage these partnerships to leverage data and technology to increase communication between employers, workforce and training providers, and job seekers.
