The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development is once again providing 12 employers in the manufacturing and transportation industries with Fast Forward Worker Training grants, this time to the tune of $1.3 million. That money will help approximately 714 trainees.
The WFF grant program awards funds to Wisconsin businesses to reimburse costs associated with occupational training. The grants cover training costs for those who are unemployed or underemployed, as well as for incumbent workers. Participants who successfully complete the training program will gain opportunities for employment, higher-level employment or increased wages.
