Attn Employers – Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) Funds

Attn Employers – Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) Funds

The Midlands Workforce Development Board (MWDB) is now accepting applications in anticipation of Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) program funds. In this round, you should not submit the same application that you submitted in the first round.  That application is still being reviewed.

The purpose of the IWT Program is to assist employers in training currently employed workers in an effort to keep businesses and workers competitive.  Private sector South Carolina employers located in Fairfield, Lexington, and Richland counties faced with changing skill requirements caused by new technology, retooling, new product lines, and/or new organizational structuring may be eligible for IWT assistance.  IWT funds are limited to skills-based training and require an employer matching contribution to the training project.

Interested employers should complete the attached IWT Program Funding Application (also available at www.midlandsworkforce.org) and submit a signed copy by the close of business on April 01, 2022, for priority consideration. To be considered for funding, an application must be completed in its entirety and signed (a detailed training description for each piece of training must also be attached to the application). A grant award and all required documents must be signed and approved before training may begin.

Applications will only be accepted electronically at mwdb@midlandsworkforce.org

For questions, please contact Steve Knight at sknight@midlandsworkforce.org.
