Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth (WIOA Youth)
On Friday, February 15th, 2019 on behalf of Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston, the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development (OWD) will issue an open and competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) for services under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth (WIOA Youth). These funds are intended to provide job training, education and career pathways services to youth ages 16-24.

A bidder’s conference will be held on Tuesday, February 26th, 2019 at 1:00pm in the 9th floor Board Room located at the Boston Planning & Development Agency, One City Hall Square, Boston, MA 02201. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend; accommodations for persons with disabilities available upon request. Please make all such requests at least 10 business days in advance.

Proposals will be due Friday, March 15th, 2019 by 5:00 P.M.
