Public Notice: Request for Proposals - Train Up: Occupational Skills Training

The Baltimore City Mayor's Office of Employment Development seeks responses to a Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide occupational training to Baltimore city residents. This initiative is one part of Baltimore’s Economic Recovery Plan. Once awarded, contractors will be expected to provide skills training to residents in one of Baltimore’s targeted industries. The training should lead to an occupational credential and a job paying at least $15/hour. The Board expects to release several other RFPs including initiatives aimed to improve adult literacy and connect residents to workforce services more broadly. There will be other supports in place for residents including legal assistance, behavioral health counseling, transportation assistance, and financial empowerment development. The RFP was released on September 9, 2021 and can be viewed on the website of the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) at moed.oedworks.gov .
