A nationally known speech writer/speaker, Klimko co-produces monthly audio-conferences that provide an insiders view to federal regulations, new billion-dollar spending projects and grant making priorities. The audio conferences have helped hundreds of listeners better position themselves for funding, burnish their applications and get a firmer grip on the federal/private money tree.
The new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is reshaping the workforce development landscape. It makes sweeping changes to the way the federal grant-making agencies give out money, and in some cases even surpasses federal funding. States are already beginning to implement training programs under WIOA – with exciting new opportunities you wouldn’t want to ignore. As a member of a local nonprofit, job board or adult/youth training organization, you can leverage the new law in many ways to get the grant funding you need.
In this session, industry veteran Frank Klimko will bring you up to speed with what’s trending, and provide a working knowledge of WIOA and skills that you can use to out-muscle the competition, and receive grant funding authorized through the new employment law. Learn the six strategies that states and localities use to manage and supplement funding for job training programs. Klimko will also walk you through the complex WIOA landscape, show you exactly how public funding flows, and how you can leverage it to support more workers and employers in their communities. The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities out there: the giving universe includes more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the United States.
After attending this webinar, you will have all the tools and the knowledge you need to become the preferred organization that wins employment funding.
