Strong Workforce Program


Funding from the Strong Workforce Program presents an exciting opportunity to strengthen Career and Technical Education (CTE) enrollment at CCSF, address existing gaps in funding, spur innovation, and put in place a solid infrastructure. We are currently implementing the CCSF Strong Workforce Program Strategic Plan that was approved in December 2016.

The SWP Funding FAQ answers many of the most common questions about the implementation of our funding. Feel free to contact us if this document doesn’t answer your questions or if you have additional questions about how to get funding for your CTE program.


Funding Areas and Opportunities

SWP funding is distributed in a variety of ways according to the funding areas defined in the Strategic Plan. The SWP Funding Page table provides a survey of SWP opportunities as well as instructions to apply.
