Helping Businesses Get Needed Training
The Washakie Development Association will work with interested business owners to apply for Workforce Training Grants through the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
Business Training Grants for Existing Positions can provide up to $2,000 per trainee per fiscal year for established Wyoming businesses with existing employees who need a skill upgrade or retraining in their current occupations.
Business Training Grants for New Positions can provide between $1,000 and a maximum of $4,000 per trainee per fiscal year, depending on the employee’s full-time status and wage amount.
The Department of Workforce Services recognizes the importance of an educated, skilled workforce in promoting Wyoming’s economic growth. To foster this growth, it is the intent of the Department of Workforce Services to assist employers through the use of the Pre-Hire Economic Development Grant Program.
