The Northwest Georgia Regional Commission is issuing “Requests for Proposal” (RFP) to provide Career/Case Management Services, Work-Based Learning Services, and Youth Services in the following Northwest Georgia counties: Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Fannin, Floyd, Gilmer, Gordon, Haralson, Murray, Pickens, Paulding, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield. These services in Northwest Georgia are served through the Northwest Georgia Workforce Development Program.

The Northwest Georgia Regional Commission has been selected as the Grant Sub-recipient for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds. Funding is contingent upon availability of funds under WIOA or other federal job training services which provide similar services if they should become available.

It is estimated that funding will be available as follows:

Career/Case Management Services—approximately $2,200,000 to $2,700,000 in Title I funds available to serve approximately 400-500 adults and dislocated workers. If additional federal funds are received from this or other funding sources, these totals may be increased at approximately the same unit cost;
Work-Based learning Services—approximately $1,100,000 to $1,400,000 in Title I funds available to serve approximately 200-250 adults and dislocated workers. If additional federal funds are received from this or other funding sources, these totals may be increased at approximately the same unit cost; and
Youth Services—approximately $1,700,000 in Title II funds available to serve approximately 400 youth between 16 and 24. If additional federal funds are received from this or other funding sources, these totals may be increased at approximately the same unit cost.

Selected contracts may be negotiated on a cost reimbursement basis for governmental and private non-profit organizations and performance based for private for-profit organizations.
