Throughout the years GOER's grant programs have been successful in addressing agency needs. Currently, there are several grant programs to help agencies meet their workforce and organizational development goals:
Management/Confidential (M/C) Grants
M/C grants assist agencies build the competencies of supervisors and managers designated M/C. These grants should have a strong focus on management and supervisory development. Additionally, M/C grants support management-driven innovative initiatives which can be replicated in other agencies.
Multi-Funded grants are designed to build the competencies of employees of CSEA, PEF, and those designated M/C, and to support the agencies' operational needs. These grants should have a strong focus on workplace skills development.
Workforce Initiative (WFI) Program
The WFI Program provides a unique opportunity for labor/management teams to work together to identify the professional development needs of PEF-represented employees and to propose training projects addressing those needs. Proposals must have labor-management support and achieve the goals of increasing organizational effectiveness and enhancing employee job skills.
At this time, no determinations have been made by the joint State-PEF Professional Development Committee regarding this program. The Committee is conducting ongoing discussions regarding its 2012 programs. Please continue to watch the GOER website, www.goer.ny.gov, for information.

This program provides funding to address education and training needs of PEF–represented nurses.
