What is Strong Workforce?

Better Career Technical Education to Increase Social Mobility and Fuel Regional Economies with Skilled Workers

Funding from the Strong Workforce Program (SWP) is intended to develop more workforce opportunity and lift low-wage workers into living-wage jobs, California took a bold step in 2016 to create one million more middle-skill workers. At the recommendation of the California Community College Board of Governors, the Governor and Legislature approved the Strong Workforce Program, adding a new annual recurring investment of $200 million to spur career technical education (CTE) in the nation’s largest workforce development system of 114 colleges.
