Purpose for Which Funds will be Used:

The law provides grant funding for customized skills training for workers and businesses located in New Jersey. The Skills Partnership Grant training program is funded through a dedicated assessment on workers and their employers and is a key component in the governor’s economic growth strategy.


Applications for funding are customized to meet specific business needs, with an emphasis on training front-line workers. In accordance with the Workforce Development Partnership law, most of the individuals receiving customized training will be trained primarily for work in the direct production of good and services.


The Customized Training program benefits both employees and business by enhancing the skills of workers, thereby increasing their productivity and the competitiveness of the employer. This investment by the state is expected to result in the creation of new jobs, the retention of jobs and an increase in wages for the trained workers.
