Established in the 2021 Budget Act, this program is part of a statewide strategy for both strengthening education-to-workforce pathways and ensuring that education, vocational, and workforce programs work in partnership to address the income, racial, and gender inequalities in education and employment.
This one-time $250 million investment will fund robust regional collaboratives involving K-12 districts, community colleges, state universities, and workforce development entities.
