Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program - Workforce Development & Adult Learning
In 2021, the Maryland General Assembly passed “Labor and Employment – Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program,” which established the Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program. The purpose of the program is to provide matching grants to eligible entities that create and expand upon successful recruitment and retention strategies in an effort to increase the number and availability of direct care workers across Maryland.
The Department released a call for proposals on April 5, 2023. Applications will be due on June 12, 2023, and grants will begin on August 1, 2023. The application, budget template, and policy for the Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program can be found below. Be sure to check back regularly for updates.
