RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Employment and Human Services Director, or designee, to execute an interagency agreement amendment with Mt.Diablo Unified School District to increase the payment limit by $171,065 to a new payment limit of $546,065 to provide Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) youth workforce development services and extend the agreement from  
July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020 to July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This interagency agreement will increase department expenditures by $171,065 to a total agreement of $546,065 to be funded 100% with federal WIOA Youth Formula funds. CFDA# 17.259  





BACKGROUND:

Funding was awarded through Request for Proposals (RFP) 1150 for the provision of comprehensive Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) youth development services to eligible youth ages 16-24 years in Central Contra Costa County and Bay Point.  
  
WIOA defines the nation's job training system and provides guidance for local workforce investment systems designed to increase the employment, retention, and earnings of participants, and to increase occupational skill attainment by participants. The goals of these efforts are to improve the quality of the workforce, reduce welfare dependency, and enhance the productivity and competitiveness of the nation. Agency will provide a systematic approach that offers eligible in-school and out-of-school youth a broad range of coordinated services.  
  
Services include assistance in academic and occupational learning; development of leadership skills; and preparation for further education, additional training, and eventual employment. Programs will provide guidance for youth balanced with appropriate consideration of each youth's involvement in his or her training and educational plan.  
.  

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

Without this Agreement, in-school and out-of-school youth in Central Contra Costa County and Bay Point will not receive assistance in overcoming barriers to employment, job readiness, educational programs, and career building.  

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

The services provided under this Agreement support all five of Contra Costa County's community outcomes: (1) "Children Ready for and Succeeding in School"; (2) "Children and Youth Healthy and Preparing for Productive Adulthood"; (3)"Families that are Economically Self-Sufficient"; (4) "Families that are Safe, Stable and Nurturing"; and (5)"Communities that are Safe and Provide a High Quality of Life for Children and Families" by providing training and employment opportunities for in-school and  
out-of-school youth.
