The New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s (NJEDA’s) Offshore Wind Workforce and Skills Development Grant Challenge (Grant Challenge) is a competitive grant program that will help prepare New Jerseyans, particularly those in overburdened communities, to develop skills for careers in offshore wind. The $3.725 million Grant Challenge will offer grants to selected entities that will aid in launching or expanding innovative workforce training and skills programs focused on strengthening and diversifying New Jersey’s offshore wind workforce.
Potential applicants for the Grant Challenge should join this webinar for an overview of the grant challenge's goals, eligibility, scope, scoring criteria, and timeline.
The Grant Challenge will be open to entities that can design and execute workforce and skills training programs. Such entities may include, but are not limited to, community-based organizations, workforce training organizations, labor unions, workforce placement intermediaries, technical high schools, community colleges, universities, non-profits, regional workforce development boards, and private companies.
