District 8 Councilmember David Alvarez invited businesses, service providers, nonprofits and other interested community members to attend this training and technical assistance session. These sessions build the understanding and capacity of interested organizations to compete for SDWP funds, and cover the purpose and goals of SDWP funded programs, required organizational infrastructure, the procurement process, and tools, resources and technical assistance.

Other presentations this year have included sessions in North and East counties in March, and in Southeastern San Diego at the Tubman Chavez Community Center earlier in June. District 4 Councilmember Myrtle Cole and Reverend Rickey Laster, Executive Director of the City of San Diego Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention, welcomed more than 50 attendees.

All sessions have been well received by the audience. “I just wanted you to know it was fantastic and full of great information for newcomers like me,” attendee Sherrie Hatchett told Councilmember Cole. “Thank you for helping us find out how to build capacity and be able to compete for these much-needed resources in our community.”

Each year, SDWP releases Request For Proposals (RFPs) focused on youth and adult job training programs. SDWP also purchases professional consulting and contracting services, equipment, food, office and cleaning supplies, temporary staffing, research reports and more.

Presentations are currently being planned for Linda Vista, National City, Hillcrest, and Imperial Beach. Sign up here to receive updates.
