IMPORTANT UPDATE: January 25, 2023
The Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) will not be extended beyond June 30, 2023. Instead, there will be a Request for Applications (RFA) process for the fiscal year 2023-2025. The RFA is open to government agencies and private or public entities and non-profits. This means that following the IGA, the backbone agency can switch from a government agency to a different agency type if that best meets the needs of their community and partnerships. See below RFA timeline.
All will have to apply for the RFA, even if they have an agreement with the agency through the IGA. The requirement of an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with, at a minimum, a CCR&R and a community college will still be part of the RFA along with the encouragement for applicants to include other partners such as high school CTE programs and universities.
