Breaking News! Claim your share of $800K in grant funding to offset your company training costs through the Job Skills Program matching grant today! The funds are for companies who need customized training and development for their workers and administered through your local community and technical colleges. You can select your training provider and build a custom program that addresses your specific business needs.
How does this work? Your company works directly with Invista Performance Solutions, a partnership of your local colleges and we bring out industry expert trainers and consultants to support you. We consult with you to identify your training needs and craft a training solution. You can also use funding for your own selected consultants and existing programming. Then we apply for the grant on your behalf and funding is released upon approval. This total amount of trainee payroll while in training is the company “match” and is applied to the cost of the training. If the wages and benefits match the cost of the training, then there is no additional cost to your company.
Businesses who have an annual gross revenue under $500K have an exemption to 100% matching requirements. It’s a great opportunity for a small business. The JSP program is a huge success for local businesses! During last fiscal year IPS secured over $1M in funding for companies in Pierce County including Rainier Woodworking, Plumb Signs, Heritage Distillery, Tool Gauge, GlobalTech Plastics, Celebrity Gourmet, Berry Global, Wilcox Farms, and is providing training in subjects such as Lean Process Improvement, Sales, Respectful Communication, Leadership, Computer Skills, ESL, and Technical and Industrial skills, Marine Welding and Electrical, and much more.
Grant applications are open now for the grant period ending June 30th, 2021.
