Good news for our Michigan customers: the Pro Training Grant is on for 2022 and…. wait for it… it covers RJG courses!!
The Going PRO Talent Fund (Talent Fund) awards grants to employers to assist in training, developing, and retaining current and newly hired employees.
Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity – Workforce Development (LEO-WD) awards the funds to employers through Michigan Works! Agencies (MWA). MWA Business Services staff conduct fact-finding sessions with employers to assess their talent skill gaps, suitable training providers and availability of federal funding sources. The MWA Business Services staff can then determine whether Talent Fund awards would be appropriate to help close the skills gap. During the application period, MWAs submit Talent Fund applications to LEO-WD on behalf of their partnering employer.
Applications will be accepted from September 20 – October 15, 2021. Learn more on the State of Michigan’s website.
