Workforce Advancement Training (WAT) Grant

Partnership with us, we manage for you.

All businesses are eligible for grant funds so long as their guidelines are maintained. The funds are applied for, managed and dispersed by your local Technical College training partner. Grant funds can greatly offset the cost for developing and delivering training projects; up to 50%. Your training program can consist of both credit and noncredit customized training projects. No Consulting services can be incorporated.

Fast Forward Grant

Self-written and self-managed.

The intent is to provide essential assistance that cannot be met through an existing program. Grants will be awarded to maximize the impact of funds in catalyzing local collaboration and also encouraging the development of sustained pipelines that directly align with employer needs. The jobs of the 21st-century economy depend on these training programs.
