“I just want to take a minute to thank you for not giving up on me. I have struggled these last few weeks and you have managed to keep me going. I thank you for everything you have done for me.”
“KTAP helped me get through a period when I didn’t have a job and no child support coming in. It was a great help. My Career Developer, Maria, was the biggest help of all, helping me put in applications. It’s a great program!”
Kentucky Works Programs
The Kentucky Works Programs (KWP) has provided a bridge to Career Pathway approach to unsubsidized employment in 34 counties since 2007 by combining time-limited subsidized employment with a comprehensive set of services to help participants overcome barriers and build work-related skills.
To enable work eligible individuals to meet the primary obligation to support their children through self-sufficiency is our primary goal. Participants may also be eligible for assistance with child care, transportation and other supportive services.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training (SNAP E&T)
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known
as food stamps, helps low-income people buy nutritious food. SNAP,
like many assistance programs, has work requirements. One of the
SNAP general work requirements is participating in the SNAP E&T
program. The SNAP E&T program promotes long-term self-sufficiency
and independence by preparing SNAP recipients for employment through
receiving on-the-job training, work experience, work-related
education, and training activities. SNAP E&T is a program of the
Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) that is administered
by five non-profits throughout Kentucky. Audubon Area Employment
Services is one of the five SNAP E&T providers for DCBS in Kentucky
and serves 34 counties.
Senior Community Service Employment Program
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), funded by Title V of the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965 provides participants with training and supportive services they need to improve their lives and gain self-sufficiency.
Participants must be at least 55 years of age, unemployed, and have a family income of no more that 125% of the federal poverty level. Enrollment priority is given to veterans and qualified spouses, then to individuals who are over 65, have a disability, have low literacy skills or limited English proficiency, reside in a rural area, are homeless or at risk of homelessness, have low employment prospects, or have failed to find employment after using services through the American Job Center system.
