Governor Walker recently announced that the first round of Worker Training Grant funding is now available.

The WISCONSIN FAST FORWARD program encourages employers to develop customized, skilled and semi-skilled labor solutions. This initial round of WISCONSIN FAST FORWARD grant program announcements makes up to $2.7 million available for competitive worker training grants. Industry sectors eligible to apply for funding include:
• Manufacturers
• Small Manufacturers (50 or fewer employees)
• Construction
• Customer Service Representatives

Worker training projects must include training of current workers and/or unemployed or underemployed individuals. Proposed training should not replace existing, routine operational training and should enhance the sustainability and growth of the business and workforce.

Grant applicants can be a single business, a consortium of businesses, or a business/businesses in partnership with local workforce development boards and/or economic development organizations.

For more information about the WISCONSIN FAST FORWARD program, please contact Gail Graham, Business Services Coordinator of the Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board (SWWDB), at (608) 314-3300, Ext. 304 or g.graham@swwdb.org.
