Funding Available for Employee Training

Mar 06, 2013 - | 11:30 AM -

Funding is available to help area businesses upgrade the skills of their employees.

Through the Kentucky Workforce Investment Network System (KY WINS), companies can receive funding to provide workforce training and assessment services for their current and/or potential employees. KY WINS funds are distributed on a project basis, and require a company cash match of only 35%.

Companies may apply individually or as a training network with other companies. The network approach is successful because companies who only need one or two employees trained are able to join with other companies to obtain cost-effective and timely training.

KY WINS is the centerpiece of the Kentucky Community and Technical College workforce and economic development efforts, and ACTC Workforce Solutions can help area business and industries qualify for training project funding.

Services of ACTC Workforce Solutions include assistance in developing customized training plans, developing training networks for businesses with common training needs, and applying for KY WINS funding.
