Request for Proposals

The following procurement opportunities are available with WorkSource Montgomery.

WorkSource Montgomery announces its next initiative to support the county’s recovery from the COVID 19 pandemic.  The Workforce Recovery Network is a funding opportunity designed to support local Community Based Organizations’ implementation of innovative workforce development programming facilitating residents’ re-attachment to employment.

Funded by the American Rescue Plan Act, WSM has released the Workforce Recovery Network Request for Proposal.  The intent of the Workforce Recovery Network funding is to support organizations serving Montgomery County residents that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. In this first year of funding, WSM has $1,000,000 ($1 Million) available and anticipates award amounts ranging from $25,000 to $100,000. Requests over $100,000 will not be reviewed and scored.

Programs should be focused on strategic workforce initiatives that assist Montgomery County residents who have experienced hardship due to the pandemic. In addition to serving individuals negatively impacted by the pandemic, the programs may also serve individuals who are: low-income, have criminal backgrounds, have disabilities, homeless, Veterans, English language learners, youth, public assistance recipients, or have barriers to employment. Programs and services targeting individuals in Montgomery County’s high poverty rate census tracks as well as the communities near the pending Purple Metro Line are encouraged.

WSM is seeking proposals that are innovative and creative. Funding requests could include expansion of traditional services such as recruitment, assessment, case management, training, subsidized employment placements, internships, and supportive services. However, WSM’s funding for this initiative is designed to be flexible and encourage new ways of offering programs and serving individuals in the county. Funds cannot be used for capital improvement or to purchase real estate or large equipment. Programming should fill in gaps brought to light by the pandemic, address issues magnified as a result of the pandemic, and/or expand innovative ideas piloted during the pandemic.

A virtual Bidder’s Conference will be held on February 2, 2022, at 10AM EST.  Please plan to attend this event if you have questions about Workforce Recovery Network funding.
