The WDC stewards federal and state workforce dollars through grants to community partners and government agencies working in Seattle-King County.
Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act
A majority of WDC's funds are available through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which was signed by President Obama on July 22, 2014 after passing Congress with broad bipartisan support. WIOA reauthorizes and amends the Workforce Investment Act (1998) through important workforce system reforms, and we are working on the local workforce plan.
Current Funding Opportunities
We regularly publish request for proposals or qualifications from the community as part of our commitment and duty to wisely invest these valuable resources.
