CUSTOMIZED TRAINING GRANT
MAXIMIZE YOUR TRAINING BUDGET AND UTILIZE THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO BUSINESSES IN OUR COMMUNITY.
Monroe County businesses can upgrade the skills of their current employees.
The goal of the Customized Training grant funding is to provide training for current, full-time employees earning $10.00 – $25.00 per hour to help them achieve transferable skill upgrades leading to potential career growth, job retention and increased wages. The grant reimburses up to $5,000 in training costs for training that must be completed within six (6) months. The grant funds the cost of the instruction, and other costs (employee wages, instruction supplies, travel, etc.) can be used as matching funds by the business. A minimum 50% match is required for this program.
"[The grant] helped offset the cost of training so it made it more affordable."
"As a small company, it helped us provide affordable training to employees, which would otherwise not be affordable."
"[The grant] allowed us training we could not have otherwise been able to afford giving us much needed skills."
HOW TO APPLY
