HIRED Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q: Can a lead applicant submit more than one letter of intent?

A: Lead applicants may submit more than one LOI. It is recommended that applicants focus on proposals with the greatest impact on and anticipated outcomes in their region and/or state rather than submit multiple programs with minimal impact and outcomes. 

 

Q: What workforce sectors and occupations are not priorities for this funding?

A: Applicants may submit Letters of Intent (LOIs) for projects in non-priority areas. State workforce development partners will review and consider all LOIs based on merit and expected impact and outcomes on employment and labor participation metrics. Although vital to our state's workforce, these workforce sectors and occupations are not designated as priorities for this funding opportunity:

  • Broadband Workers
  • Education/Teaching (Early Childhood, K-12, Administrators, etc.)
  • Health Support Workers (Community Health Workers, Doulas, etc.)
  • Hospitality and Food
  • Nursing (CNA, LPN, RN, etc.)
  • Law Enforcement/EMT/Fire
  • Leadership/Retail/Entrepreneurship
  • Physicians
  • Tourism and Outdoor Economy
  • Not an exhaustive list.

 

Q: May lead applicants submitting a LOI also be listed as workforce partners on the LOI of other lead applicants?

A: Yes. 

 

Q: Are letters of support from workforce partners required for the LOI?

A: Letters of support are not required for submission of the LOI but would be required if invited to submit a Planning or Implementation grant proposal. The LOI must include a list of workforce partners and labor market information regarding employer needs.

 

Q: Are there page limitations for any of the proposal types?

A: The LOI form limits characters within the text boxes provided and is intended to be a high-level, brief project description. The Planning and Implementation Grant proposal narratives are recommended to be no more than 10 pages. Narratives over 15 pages will not be considered. This does not include the Budget Template or Letters of Support.

 

Q: Is there a defined limit to the number of intent letters each institution can be a party to?

A: There is not a limit on the number of intent letters an institution may submit. It is recommended that applicants focus on proposals with the greatest impact on and anticipated outcomes in their region and/or state rather than submit multiple programs with minimal impact and outcomes.
