RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Employment and Human Services Director, or designee, to execute an interagency agreement amendment with Contra Costa County Office of Education to increase the payment limit by $613,573 to a new payment limit of $1,363,573 to provide Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act youth services and extend the term through June 30, 2021.  

FISCAL IMPACT:

This interagency agreement will increase department expenditure by $613,573 to a total agreement of $1,363,573 to be funded 100% with federal WIOA Youth Formula funds. CFDA #17.259

BACKGROUND:

This agreement was awarded through Request for Proposal (RFP) 1150 for the provision of comprehensive Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) youth development services to eligible youth ages 16-24 in West county and far East county. Funding for this Agreement will come from WIOA Formula Youth funds.  




BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)
  
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.  
  
This includes 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 that is 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 West county and far East county will not receive assistance in overcoming barriers to employment, job readiness, educational programs, and career building.
