ABOUT THE FUND
Wilmington Alliance sponsors city-based workforce development initiatives through funding, technical assistance and partnership development. Established through an anchor sponsorship by Barclays US Consumer Bank, the Wilmington is Working Equitable Technology Fund will support Workforce Development Programming to continue training and implementation through the COVID-19 pandemic by navigating the digital divide. The continuation of programs via virtual access would increase equitable access to training to mitigate and sustain the trajectory of skills acquisition and employment for many of our marginalized citizens in Wilmington.
The Wilmington is Working Equitable Technology Fund is structured to assist City-of-Wilmington-serving 501c3 organizations that address workforce training and placement needs for adults and out of school youth.
Funds awarded must be used to access technology, hardware and virtual connectivity for existing and emerging workforce training programs who are able to deliver training to learners virtually.
Target organizations must document being located in Wilmington, DE and/or serving Wilmington-area residents through its workforce development programming.
Funding awarded to programs will be earmarked for technology access through an existing pipeline with the local vendor,
NERDiT NOW. There is no maximum award amount, however applicants must include the number of learners being served, which will determine the award amount.
The Wilmington is Working Equitable Technology Fund will generally not consider proposals to fund:
