12/09/16 UPDATE: FY 2017 Skilled Trades Training Fund Awards

The Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) provides competitive awards for employer responsive training that enhances talent, productivity, and employment retention while increasing the quality and competitiveness of Michigan’s businesses.  The STTF ensures Michigan’s employers have the talent they need to compete and grow, and individuals have the skills they need for in-demand jobs.  Collaboration between the Michigan Works! Agencies, economic development, and educational partners is essential to achieving demand-driven training that addresses talent shortages hampering the growth of Michigan’s industries.

GST Michigan Works! Business Services Professionals worked with the companies listed below to secure Skilled Trades Training Fund Grants to fund training to enhance their local workforce and increase company capacity to retain present and acquire new work.

GST Michigan Works! received funding for thirty-two (32) companies in the amount of $1,075,046.  Twenty-six (26) were funded through FY17 grant dollars.  Six (6) received funding via the re-issuance of unexpended FY16 STTF dollars.

GST Michigan Works! was awarded $206,494 in FY 2016 as compared to $844,365 this fiscal year.  This is an increase of $637,871.  This was due to the combined work of our BSPs across our Michigan Works! Agency.
