Workforce Inovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) Initiative (SGA/DFA-PY-05-04): In the new global economy, talent development is a key factor in our nations economic competitiveness. To stay ahead of global competition, we must identify strategies to further integrate workforce and economic development with education at the regional level where companies, workers, researchers, entrepreneurs and governments come together to create a competitive advantage. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) fully supports the development of a regional, integrated approach to workforce and economic development and education. To further this goal, we are announcing the Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) Initiative. The initiative will provide regions with funding and ongoing technical assistance and support from a cadre of experts to implement a transformational approach to their workforce and economic development systems at the regional level. The WIRED Initiative will take place over the course of three years. It is anticipated that individual grant awards will be in the range of $5 million per year for up to three years. The Department reserves the right to award grants at either higher or lower amounts. Eight to ten regions will be selected to participate. Only Governors may apply on behalf of regions within their states. Joint application submissions for regions that cross state lines are also encouraged. By participating in the WIRED Initiative, regions will be empowered to implement ground-breaking strategies that will result in their workforce investment system becoming a key component of their regions economic development strategy. The ultimate goal of the WIRED Initiative is to expand employment and advancement opportunities for American workers and catalyze the creation of high-skill and high-wage opportunities.
