I’m a small business. Is this really for me?
Absolutely! While companies of all sizes are eligible to apply, the fund’s focus is on small to medium-sized companies. In fact, about 15% of all grants have been awarded to companies with fewer than 20 employees, and nearly 30% to companies with 50 or fewer employees. Another avenue that might work well for you as a small business is the Workforce Training Fund Express. For information on that program.

How long do I have to wait?
Decisions are made about 2 months after the application deadline, so plan your training program for 4 months after the deadline.
