​California Community College Chancellor's Office Strong Workforce Program


California's Strong Workforce Program (SWP) is an initiative to expand career technical education (CTE) programs in California Community Colleges that encourages cross sector collaboration, employer engagement, and regional partnerships. Shasta College is part of the North Far North (NFN) region, which is in the process of constructing a regional plan to ensure our CTE programs meet the supply and demand of the labor market by collaborating with multiple colleges and across multiple workforce development boards, including WIOA, AEBG, K-12 and PERKINS.

Two applications are required for the SWP process - one for the local district allocation and one for the regional allocation. 

​​Local Allocation ($753,000 annually for 3 years)

        Local applications for Shasta College are due to your dean by November 3rd, 
        2016. Be ​​prepared to present your proposal on November 4th, 2016. 


​Regional Allocation ($308,032 annually for 3 years)

        Regional applications are due to your dean by October 27th, 2016. Be prepared to
        present (or have a proxy present) your proposal at the NFN regional meeting on
