  • Posted by East End District

After a review of the proposals, the Review Committee is requesting additional information from all respondents. All respondents should have received email correspondence with specific details of added information requested.

We understand the time necessary to compile the requested information and are requesting electronic submission by the new deadline: 2PM, Thursday, August 29, 2019 by email to Veronica@EastEndDistrict.com.

Those respondents who do not complete this additional request by the deadline will be removed from further consideration for this grant.

As a result of this additional request, final award of the 2019-2020 Workforce Grants will be moved to the September 26th Board meeting. Additional questions may be directed to Veronica@eastenddistrict.com.

The East End District’s 2017-2020 Strategic Plan for Economic Development supports the expansion and retention of existing businesses and encourages entrepreneurialism and small business creation, including skills training and other education programs. To that end, the District allocates 3% of annual assessment revenue toward workforce development projects that benefit both workers and employers in the East End. The District is accepting proposals through July 31, 2019, from qualified organizations that have programs or projects that provide job skills training and/or job placement services that benefit East End workers and employers.
