The Division of Workforce Development and Adult Learning (DWDAL) of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) is seeking proposals from organizations working to stem the tide of opioid addiction with particular emphasis on those serving women impacted by the opioid epidemic. The intent is to fund projects that provide services to women who have been directly or indirectly affected by the opioid crisis and that train women to seek to work in a profession supporting those struggling with an opioid addiction. The ideal candidate will be responsible for leading a multi-disciplinary, public-private partnerships to mount coordinated, employment-focused interventions to train and employ women workers who have been affected by opioid abuse or who want to gain the skills to better serve this population. More specifically, the program’s primary objective is to assist in establishing cooperative relationships among service providers and key stakeholders from the state and federal workforce development systems, public health and substance abuse treatment professionals, and other human services and support service entities. Recognizing that some women impacted by the opioid crisis may have had exposure to the criminal justice system, a diverse group of partner agencies and organizations is a required component to satisfy contractual objectives. Bids are due back April 29th at 2:00 PM. Bid Manager, The Bid Lab’s start-to-finish proposal service can help you get started today.
