Using Stimulus Funds to Pay for Corporate or Individual Training
For companies that may be tempted to put training initiatives on hold, the timing of federal stimulus funds couldn’t be better. Financial allocations in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act include stimulus dollars for education programs such as corporate training. Funding for annual corporate training grants has increased significantly, with the government paying for 75% or more of the total costs in some instances. Individuals who qualify may also receive government funding for SCC’s new, Workforce-approved online programs.
