Michigan Workforce Training Center Equipment Grant Program - deadline January 19, 2022
In an effort to continue to support businesses, this Program will provide funding to fifteen (15) local or nonprofit economic development organizations (EDOs), or their designees, that previously participated in the Michigan small business relief program, to provide equipment grants for employer-driven workforce training programs provided to a qualified training provider that provides workforce training for qualified employers and individuals. Workforce training includes, but is not limited to:
- Talent enhancement
- Increasing worker productivity
- Development of workforce skills
- Leadership and management training
- Worker retention
Funding will be distributed on a percentage basis consistent with the Small Business Restart Grants distributed in 2020 (PA 123) to each of the 15 local and nonprofit EDOs. A local or nonprofit EDO, or its designee, may retain up to 5% of the amount it receives for awards for administration. Grants made available to eligible recipients under the program must not exceed $90,000.00.
The application window to apply for grant funds is open from Monday, January 10, 2022 – Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
