Workforce training grants available

Oneonta, N.Y. – New York State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) announced today that approximately $4.6 million in statewide funds are available to help businesses train existing employees in new job skills.

  “This grant will allow businesses to train their workers in new skills, while giving employees a chance to climb the corporate ladder,” Seward said. “The funding will be especially helpful to small businesses which are the lifeblood of the upstate economy.  I am hopeful that businesses in the 51st district will be able to take advantage of  the Skills Training and Education Program (STEP).”

The Skills Training and Education Program (STEP) uses Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds to address employer demands for skilled workers. Both for profit and non-profit businesses employing four or more people are eligible to apply for awards of up to $50,000.  At least 30 percent of the training funds are set aside for small businesses.

“At a time when businesses are watching their bottom line, this is a great way for them to prepare for the ever changing business climate,” Seward added.

Applicants are required to contact the local workforce investment area before completing or submitting the grant application.

 In Chenango and Otsego counties, businesses may contact Gary Waffle at 607-334-2201, ext. 128 or Alan Session at 607-432-4800, ext. 103.
