The Northern Kentucky Area Development District (NKADD)/Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board (NKWIB), as administrative entity for the programs in the eight-county Northern Kentucky region, is requesting proposals for programs to operate between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. The eight-county area consists of Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Grant, Gallatin, Kenton, Owen and Pendleton. The NKWIB awards contracts for one year, renewable annually for up to two additional years, pending satisfactory performance.

Should the availability of such funding decrease following any award to a subrecipient, the award will be revised accordingly. In addition, if awarded, the subcontractor must be willing to alter program design based on NKWIB, State, or USDOL guidance.
