Contracts for services to USA nonprofit organizations for workforce training for underserved communities. Applicants are advised that required registration may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to bolster the cyberspace security industry by supporting providers that create or enhance existing entry-level training and apprenticeship programs.
CDET seeks to award a new cooperative agreement for a pilot titled “Cybersecurity Workforce Development and Training Pilot for Underserved Communities” in fiscal year 2021. The activities contemplated in this agreement advance CISA’s mission as defined in authorities within the Homeland Security Act of 2002, as amended by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2018, specifically as it relates to providing shared situational awareness to enable real-time, integrated, and operational actions across the Federal Government and non-Federal entities to address cybersecurity risks and incidents. The activities contemplated in the agreement directly support the Department of Homeland Security mission areas to safeguard and secure cyberspace. This cooperative agreement seeks to fund applicants to develop a scalable and replicable proof of concept that can respond to cyber eco-system challenges.
This cooperative agreement also seeks to leverage the unrealized cybersecurity talent of underserved communities through established or emerging non-traditional technical training providers that create or enhance existing entry-level training and apprenticeship programs. Additionally, to optimize and expand existing cybersecurity training and apprenticeship programs, the development and implementation of a comprehensive cybersecurity pathways retention strategy to address apprenticeship-to-placement engagement, is needed. Expanding apprenticeships helps the Federal government, state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) entities, as well as, traditional employers with their current and future workforce needs.
