Vermont Department of Labor Grant Funding Opportunity Announcement
The Workforce Education and Training Fund (WETF) supports up-skilling and re-skilling opportunities for Vermont workers through technical and academic instruction, on-the-job training, internships, pre-apprenticeships, apprenticeships, returnships, and other workforce development activities aimed at strengthening and expanding the labor force.
The Vermont Training Grants (VTG), funded through the WETF, provide grants to private, public, and non-profit entities – including school districts – for existing or new training programs that enhance the skills of Vermont workers. Training programs funded by VTG must lead to an industry recognized credential, post-secondary degree, certificate, or endorsement.
In fiscal year 2019, the Department of Labor is allocating $350,000 of the WETF in support of VTG. This funding opportunity announcement describes the process for awarding these funds through a competitive application process. For more information click here.
