Merced County Westside Youth Construction Pilot Employment Program (RFP 7272)
The County of Merced is looking for qualified proposals from organizations interested in providing youth services through a construction focused pilot employment program. This program would be focused on the west side of Merced County (specific areas defined later in this RFP) and on “Youth” populations as defined by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The Merced County Workforce Development Board (WDB) seeks to fund youth projects that do not duplicate or expand existing programs in the community. The WDB is interested in projects that will identify the unmet diverse needs of Youth ages 18-24 that will empower these young participants to their maximum human potential.
