This RFQ solicits proposals from organizations that can demonstrate the ability to provide support services to compliment work experience/employment opportunities which can support the City of Los Angeles Prison to Employment (P2E) grant. Successful proposers will be placed on a pre-qualified list of service providers that will be eligible to subcontract with WorkSource Centers or with the City for the delivery of services on a contracted fee for service basis. Qualified proposers may also have an opportunity to partner with a WorkSource Center or with the City in the submission of future grant applications.

The P2E Initiative is a state grant program designed to create a system of integration between workforce and reentry services in California’s 14 labor regions. The goal is to improve labor market outcomes by creating a systemic and ongoing partnership between rehabilitative programs within California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the state workforce system by bringing CDCR under the policy umbrella of the State Workforce Plan.

As a part of City of Los Angeles' implementation of the regional P2E grant, the EWDD will establish P2E HUBS at five WorkSource Centers in the South LA, Central LA, Southeast LA/Watts, East LA, and San Fernando Valley regional areas. The five HUBS will be selected by a separate Request for Information solely for procured WorkSource System providers. WorkSource and YouthSource providers are not eligible to apply for this RFQ.

The full RFQ and all related documents and forms may be downloaded through the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN).
