Workforce Development

The City’s Office of Innovation and Economic Development is focused on better connecting residents in underserved communities with critical workforce resources.
The workforce development priorities and goals are to build capacity, expand the reach of workforce development training activities and provide wraparound and supportive services into the neighborhoods.

The City’s workforce development programs will support and advance inclusive economic growth, improve the health of neighborhoods and support people, places, and actions that promote overall economic recovery and impacts immediately and well beyond the pandemic.

Workforce Subcommittee 

The Workforce Working Group (WWG), also known as the Workforce Subcommittee of the Inclusive Economic and Community Development (IEDC) Investment Committee, was established in September of 2019. 

WWG is comprised of 13-active members that are workforce development experts, providers and partners, whom have dedicated their time and professional expertise to assisting City staff with insight and recommendations on workforce development investments and programs administered by the City.

CARES Act Funded Workforce Recovery Program 

Mayor and City Council in July 2020 allocated $10 million in Federal CARES Act funding to workforce development programs and resources to help counter the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Sacramento’s families and communities.

This was the first-ever workforce development investment of this size, by the City of Sacramento. This allocation provided grant funding to 29 workforce programs, implemented by over 30 workforce providers that served 2,100 Sacramento residents
