Companies, job applicants can seek help through Aug. 31

The deadline for small-business owners and job seekers to apply for the Clark County Business Opportunity and Workforce Development program has been extended to Aug. 31.

The program, unveiled in July, is offered free and guides participating companies and job applicants through the process of competing for county contracts.

To qualify, the company must have a business license, offer goods or services the county would purchase and complete an assessment that determines whether it fits into the four-month curriculum. Participating firms will attend weekly, biweekly or monthly classes, depending upon assigned curriculum levels.

Unemployed and underemployed people will have opportunity to be trained and matched with BOWD firms seeing to hire as they build capacity. Applicants must be a Nevada resident, at least 18 years of age and have a valid Social Security number.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, approved by the Clark County Commission and administered by Akers & Associates.

Small-business owners who wish to enroll in the program can contact Akers & Associates at 724-1500 or melyssa@akersinc.com. Job seekers can contact Jake McClelland from the Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow at 367-4348 or JakeM@LasVegasFit.org.

Contact reporter Hubble Smith at hsmith@reviewjournal.com or 702-383-0491.
