Skills Development Fund

The Skills Development Fund is a new program designed to help Texas public community and technical colleges finance customized job training for their local businesses. The Fund will provide training for specific skills for workers who will be hired by the businesses. The Legislature appropriated $48 million in training funds available for Texas employers and workers.

The program will assist the community through business expansion or relocation, and continue to help the creation of a competitive and trained Texas workforce.

Businesses and labor unions that form partnerships with local community colleges and technical schools may apply. They should have a training plan and jobs, which pay the occupational wage in their local area.

A proposal packet or additional information can be obtained by contacting the Business Services Division of the Texas Workforce Commission at (512) 463-8844 or visit http://skills.texasworkforce.org
