FF134ML1 - Grant Available for Wisconsin Manufacturers

Grant ID: FF134ML1

OSD is seeking applications from Wisconsin manufacturing businesses that have a specific labor need supported by labor market information that is not met through an existing education or training program. The grant funds may not be used to supplant existing, routine business training programs, but should focus on skill gaps in the employer’s workforce.

Applications should include a training plan for incumbent workers and/or currently unemployed/underemployed workers. Training programs for unemployed/underemployed workers must be in response to a documented skilled worker shortage in a specific business or region. Incumbent training programs should outline the education to be provided and skills determined necessary by the employer(s) to enhance the stability and growth of the business and provide opportunities for income and career growth for trainees.
