CALIFORNIA JOBS FIRST - LOS ANGELES COLLABORATIVE
The creation of the California Jobs First (formerly CERF), aims to facilitate a sustainable and just rebound from the economic challenges posed by COVID-19. California Jobs First is dedicated to fostering diverse local economies and establishing sustainable industries that generate high-quality employment opportunities accessible to all Californians.
In pursuit of this objective, a total of $600 million will be allocated across thirteen specified regions to support the formulation of tailored economic development strategies. These strategies are geared towards fostering the growth of quality jobs while ensuring equitable access to these opportunities. Our specific region, known as the Los Angeles Collaborative, operates with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) as the Convenor and the California Community Foundation (CCF) as the Fiscal Agent.
