Workforce Development Grants Available

The New Jersey Department of Labor has released information on the next round of Workforce Development Grants to help companies upgrade the skills of their current staff and/ or train new employees with up to $50,000 per company available.

The New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, Inc., a not-for-profit, is working with manufacturers and STEM-based firms throughout the state on the program, according to a press release from the organization, which said that a plan is developed after a corporate assessment is conducted to determine appropriate training for organizations.

The key programs include: Lean Transformation, ISO Process – towards Certification, ISO – 2015 Revisions for Re-Certification and Food Organization & Safety. Other programs available include Business Development – Sales & Marketing, Supervisory Development and Leadership / Business Communication, the release said.

NJMEP is recommending Nov. 25, as a deadline for the letters of intent and Dec. 9, as the deadline for grant submittals. The grants are developed to be “matching,” as the NJ-DOL pays for the cost of the training. Companies cover the cost of their employees to participate in training. These programs are generally provided on-site.

Manufacturers or STEM-based firms interested, should contact NJMEP by calling 973-998-9801, e-mailing or filling out the online form by clicking here.
