The Hub Structure

Empowering Growth and Collaboration:

The Outreach and Engagement Hub Structure is a pivotal force behind the California Jobs First - Los Angeles Collaborative program, encompassing 90 SPA-Based Subregional Tables, 12 Affinity Hub Leads, and 8 Table Partner Leads.

The Hub Structure aims to engage and connect with disinvested communities by spearheading an outreach initiative to gather their feedback, analyze their needs, and co-create strategies for economic development.

SPA-Based Subregional Tables

Ninety grassroots community organizations are funded to represent specific thematic areas within each Service Planning Area (SPA). This approach fosters regional diversity and a wide range of perspectives, contributing to an effective and inclusive planning process. By conducting outreach, engaging, and gathering data from constituents in local service planning areas, the Subregional Table Leads ensure that community lived experience is factored into the LA HRTC planning process.

Affinity Hub Leads

Twelve Affinity Hub Leads are funded to enhance representation for underrepresented subgroups among stakeholders. They convene and facilitate discussions, respond to data analysis, share insights with other tables, provide resources for community participation, gather feedback, and facilitate communication between stakeholders and the Steering Committee. Their role empowers underrepresented groups and ensures their influential voice in the decision-making process. Affinity Hub Leads hold dual roles, operating within the Steering Committee while fulfilling their responsibilities in enhancing representation and facilitating community engagement.

Table Partner Leads

Eight Table Partner Leads are pivotal in advancing the objectives of underrepresented populations within specific industry sectors that necessitate specialized attention in data gathering and comprehensive planning. Through the efforts of the Table Partner Leads, we aim to pioneer green job opportunities and ensure that future industry sectors are built on equity, diversity, and inclusion principles. By collaborating with these partners, we will develop a comprehensive Regional Economic Development Plan that fosters sustainable growth and prosperity for all members of our community.


Outreach and Engagement Funding Structure

Funding will be made available to the Affinity and Subregional Tables to undertake the outreach and engagement responsibilities outlined in the proposal. The accompanying graphic displays the funding options that our Partners will have an opportunity to access.
