The Skills Partnership Training Grant funds are competitively awarded to New Jersey employers to provide up to 50% cost reimbursement assistance to train current and/or new employees to meet the current and future skill requirements of available high skilled/high wage jobs in New Jersey. Grant funds are intended to “seed” organizational training and are not intended for annual training or training that would otherwise be conducted without grant assistance.
All grants awarded must be;
• Employer driven - the employer decides who receives training and what type of training is needed;
• Shared costs - eligible training costs are shared between LWD and the employer 50-50;
• Outcome based – training must focus on a specific business solution and participants should receive a portable recognized credential at the end of the training.
• Focused on Front Line Trainees - training must be focused on those employees directly involved with the direct production of the good or service created by the applicant.
