Workforce Innovation and Opportunity ACT and COMPASS Request for Proposals

The NYC Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) has released two new Requests for Proposals through the HHS Accelerator system to prequalified organizations in the relevant service areas. Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity ACT (WIOA) for Out-of-School Youth (OSY) Programs, DYCD is seeking organizations to implement federally funded WIOA programs for OSY, ages 16 - 24 years old. DYCD aims to fund integrated and holistic models that will strengthen New York City’s workforce development system and help young people gain the support, educational credentials and skills needed to succeed in today’s economy. Through COMPASS High, DYCD is seeking organizations to provide school-based COMPASS High programs for students entering grades 9 and 10. These programs will offer peer support and positive adult role models and will motivate students to remain engaged in school, pursue their goals and interests and explore post-secondary and career options.
