Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a Minnesota private or nonprofit organization or agency in eligible counties to provide employment services to adults. Funding is intended to provide the necessary skills to adults who have spent a number of years unemployed. The job seekers will receive pre-employment skills and secure employment to provide for their family after loss of income. To be eligible, the respondent must have one or more operating, physical locations in SE Minnesota, specifically in one or more of the counties of Houston, Fillmore, Mower, Winona, Olmsted, Dodge, Wabasha, Goodhue, Freeborn, Rice, or Steel counties.

The Department of Employment and Economic Development, through its Employment & Training Division’s Adult Career Pathways programs, is seeking proposals from qualified responders to provide services to eligible Minnesota (Mn) Family Resiliency Partnership (federally known as Displaced Homemaker Program) adults in the Southeast region of Minnesota. Historically, individuals enrolled have shown resiliency within their situation and the objective to obtain pre-employment skills and secure employment to provide for their family after loss of income.

A displaced homemaker is defined as an individual who has spent a substantial number of years in the home providing homemaking services and:

  1. Has been dependent upon the financial support of another; and now due to divorce, separation, death or disability of that person, must find employment to self-support, or
  2. Derived a substantial share of support from public assistance 1 on account of dependents in the home and no longer receives such support AND
  3. Meets income guidelines (at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines.)

Within DEED’s Employment & Training Division, Adult Career Pathways programs will be focused on awarding proposals that place an emphasis on the following three themes:

  • Equity: Adult Career Pathways programs seek to build an inclusive, skilled workforce and reduce disparities based on race, disability, and gender.
  • Innovation: Adult Career Pathways programs recognize that new solutions must be developed to respond to new and ongoing challenges in our workforce and communities.
  • Performance: Adult Career Pathways programs are built on a foundation of partnerships, most significantly between program providers and employers.

More about these themes can be found on page 4 of the RFP.

Tasks/Deliverables can be found on page 9 of the RFP. See Supporting Documents, below.
