City Program Partner Portal

Welcome to the City Program Partner Portal.

Here, LA:RISE partner staff can find the latest versions of important programmatic forms and resources. For new city LA:RISE partner staff, please visit the City Training Hub to find the necessary training material for a full program onboarding.

The Program Management list contains documents that are useful to all partner staff, regardless of their role. The content of the remainder of the partner portal is separated by phase in the LA:RISE program (Transitional Employment, Competitive Employment, Retention Services). Generally only staff involved in each phase of the program will have a need for the respective list.

You can find the portals for the other initiatives linked here: County Expansion Program, Youth Academy, CD 2, and CD 10.

LA:RISE is an employment pathway providing paid transitional work experience in an employment social enterprise, enrollment into WIOA programs for job readiness and connections to career pathways, and wrap-around supportive services from enrollment through retention (one year post job placement).

The following are the eligibility criteria for participants of this program:

  • The LA:RISE Eligibility Checklist Form is to be used to determine program eligibility.
