INCUMBENT WORKER TRAINING GRANT PROGRAM
When workers lack essential training, businesses experience skills gaps. This can compromise a company’s ability to retain workers, grow, and prosper. Florida’s Incumbent Worker Training grants can help. The program provides grants for continuing education and training of current full-time employees at Florida companies.
With a focus on helping Florida’s small businesses, the grants reimburse companies up to 75% for pre-approved training costs. Companies choose their training provider based on the skills needed.
