SC Works Trident Announces Availability of Incumbent Worker Training Funds
SC Works Trident on Wednesday announced the availability of Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) funds in the amount of $50,000, which provide employers an opportunity to upgrade the skills of their current workforce through reimbursable training services and expenses.
The funding, which is being made available under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, can be used to cover the cost of training related to expansion, new technology, new services/product lines, new organizational structuring or to be used as part of a layoff aversion strategy. Please note that reimbursements cannot be made for expenditures that occurred prior to the agreement period.
In order to be eligible to receive funding, employers must be up-to-date on all South Carolina state tax obligations, have at least one full-time employee and document at least 6 months of employment history with any potential trainees.
Applications for IWT funding are available at www.scworkstrident.org and must include a training curriculum. One application per business will be considered.
Completed applications must be submitted to Sharon Goss at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2023.
