Employee Training Grants, also known as Incumbent Worker Training (IWT)
IWT, funded under the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides both workers and employers with the opportunity to build and maintain a quality workforce and increase both participants’ and companies’ competitiveness. It is a type of work-based training and upskilling designed to ensure that employees of a company can acquire the skills necessary to retain employment and advance within the company, or to acquire the skills necessary to avert a layoff.
Utilizing the training grants, the Workforce Investment Board partners with your company to reduce your training costs. You choose the kind of training; which employees to train; when, where and how the training will be provided; no pre-set list of trainers, schools or classes.
Companies with Will County sites in Healthcare, Manufacturing, Professional/Financial/Information Technology Services, and Transportation/Distribution/Logistics (TDL) industries are eligible to apply.
