State and Local Workforce Fellowship

RFA's Workforce Fellowship

Since 2014, RFA has supported the evidence-driven transformation of the public and social services sector through fellowship programs for state and local workforce leaders, state education leaders, city/county government leaders, and nonprofit chief executives.

RFA’s State and Local Workforce Fellowship works with data- and evidence-driven state and local government leaders to make tangible progress in improving workforce outcomes. Despite tremendous pressure and unprecedented need, Fellowship teams have made incredible progress throughout the pandemic, and the need for an equitable recovery, driven by data and evidence, continues. Fellowship teams’ accomplishments include advancing equitable outcomes-based procurement and grantmaking, implementing job quality initiatives, and achieving cultural change shifts toward evidence within government agencies and provider communities.
