Program Summary

Kentucky’s training incentive program for elected county officials began with the enactment of House Bill 810 (KRS 64.5275), effective in January 1999. The program offers county judge-executives, fiscal court members, clerks, sheriffs and jailers an annual financial incentive to participate in continuing training relevant to their official duties.

Training is offered by a variety of agencies, professional associations, and private vendors. DLG enrolls officials in the program, pre-approves training events, records individual attendance for credit, and authorizes incentive payments. Participating officials may earn one incentive for each calendar year in office by providing documentation of 40 hours of approved training.

For questions concerning the County Officials Training Program, please contact Tanya Kearney @ or 502-564-0674

Incentive Notice

Under the carryover provisions of this program, many persons now qualify for their annual incentive at the first of the year. Due to the time requirements involved in the process of calculating the new year’s incentive value and the generating of these incentive letters, the issuance of the letters will not take place until mid-February of the new year. Our staff works to complete this process as quickly as possible.
