King County in partnership with Sound Transit is seeking proposals from not-for-profit and community-based organizations to develop programs and solutions aimed towards increasing the retention of apprentices in the construction industry for communities that have had less access to opportunities. The focus of this funding is to implement solutions that address the challenges faced by apprentices, primarily people of color, women and individuals that are low income, under-represented, or live in Priority Hire Zip Codes (Priority Populations), to remain in the construction pipeline and become a journey level worker.
This RFP is open to not-for-profit organizations, including apprenticeship programs, community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, schools and school districts, and public or governmental agencies, or a combination of these organizations serving communities in King, Pierce and Snohomish County. Small non-profits, community-based organizations, and apprenticeship programs are encouraged to submit proposals.
