Acquire Community-Based Job Training Grants
The Department of Labor’s latest round of Community-Based Job Training Grants places special emphasis upon defining the regional economy, identifying industry focus areas, assessing the workforce, and identifying competencies associated with high-wage, high-growth industries and occupations. EMSI/CCbenefits’ tools and reports place all this information at your fingertips. With data customized for your region, EMSI/CCbenefits can be a fast and efficient resource that provides information far above and beyond the typical state and locally provided data.
Access Key Data. EMSI and CCbenefits have developed reports and web-based tools that have all the elements needed to produce a comprehensive regional summary and build data-driven proposals that the DOL is looking for.
- Use the Gap Analysis Report to gain a high-level understanding of the region’s economy and workforce.
- Use the Industry Focus Report to see the current and projected state of a specific industry sector or cluster.
- Use Strategic Advantage (formerly the CCSP) to access crucial, integrated regional economic and workforce data; identify high-growth industries and occupations and any related worker shortages; evaluate regional competencies and skills embedded in the workforce; estimate ripple effects that high-growth industries will have in the economy; and view your region’s educational attainment and high school graduations.
- Compile all of this information as part of your regional SWOT analysis.
- Contact our helpful Solutions Customer Service to answer questions about the data, identify the competencies and skills associated with industries and occupations, and get input on the proposal.
Project Experience. In addition, CCbenefits/EMSI works closely with Workforce Strategy Center to deliver a complete regional analysis and technical assistance solution to CBJT grant recipients. WSC assists regions in building responsive systems for education, training, workforce, and economic development to increase the competitiveness of the American economy.
