Southern New England Connecticut Workforce Grants Webinar

next event

Tuesday, December 6, 2022

Join the Southern New England District on December 6 for a complimentary webinar on available Connecticut workforce grants, presented by Benjamin Clapp, business partnership coordinator, Capital Workforce Partners.

Benjamin's presentation will center on a $10 million federal (U.S. Dept. of Labor) grant that the five CT workforce boards are offering, badged as the CT High-Tech Industry Skills Partnership, or CT-WHISP for short. Through it, manufacturers may apply for incumbent worker training reimbursements of up to $2,000 per participant for eligible training, as well as up to $5,000 in on-the-job training reimbursements when they commit to individualizing training plans for new employees.
