About the Sector Navigator Grants

The goals of Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy are as follows: to supply in-demand skills for employers, create relevant career pathways and stackable credentials, promote student success, and get Californians into open jobs. Key activities under this framework include: a focus on regional priority/emergent sectors and industry clusters (to be referred to simply as “sectors”); take effective practices to scale; integrate and leverage programming between funding streams; promote common metrics for student success; remove structural barriers to execution.

This grant funds ten Sector Navigators (maximum $172,500 requiring a dollar-for-dollar match), the HUB from which the Sector Navigator will operate (maximum $50,000 no match required), and the Knowledge Communities and Advisory Bodies (maximum $150,000 requiring a dollar-for-dollar match) necessary to align the work of the Sector Navigator with the industry sector being served.
