Applications Open for Incumbent Worker Training Program

The Midlands Workforce Development Board (MWDB) is now accepting a second round of applications in anticipation of Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) program fund availability.

The purpose of the IWT Program is to assist employers in training currently employed workers to keep businesses and their workforce 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 funding assistance. IWT funds are limited to skills-based training and require an employer matching contribution to the training project.

Applications are available at www.midlandsworkforce.org and should be received by Friday, May 7, 2021, for priority consideration.

Applications will only be accepted electronically at mwdb@midlandsworkforce.org, or by mail:
