Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program - Workforce Development & Adult Learning

Direct Care Workforce Innovation Program

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 May 5, 2022. Applications will be due in July and grants will begin in October of 2022. Be sure to check back regularly for updates!
