The mission of Project SlingShot is to strengthen the Capital Region’s Innovation Ecosystem and to spur economic growth and job creation. The Capital Region’s SlingShot initiative will advance regional economic prosperity and improve income mobility. The Capital Region’s SlingShot initiative addresses a key priority of the region’s cluster-based economic strategy Next Economy. Innovative businesses – both start-ups and more established firms – increase economic productivity, making rising wages and income mobility possible. Through SlingShot, the Capital Region Coalition will develop and implement a strategy for increasing the region’s capacity to innovate while ensuring the residents are prepared to access new workforce opportunities being created.

Veteran’s National Emergency Grant (NEG) Funding

Golden Sierra partnered with Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA) and Sacramento Works to apply and receive a National Emergency Grant (NEG) to provide wages to veterans who have trained in the healthcare field yet remain unemployed. The grant will allow Golden Sierra to supply $50,000 in wages to employers within the three county Golden Sierra region who elect to hire and train those who served our country. Interested employers or veterans should contact us here. We will respond promptly.Veterans_Healthcare_Flyer
