WIOA Incumbent Worker Training Funding Programs

About

Keeping employees equipped with the latest trade knowledge and skills can be expensive, and in a challenging economy it can end up on hold indefinitely.  Home Furnishings Association(HFA) has located resources in our member states that could assist you with funding for workforce training.

 

In the PDF linked on this page, you will find various programs, by state, that are currently available.  Please note that the information provided on the various links to different states may change.  HFA will do our best to keep this information as current as possible.  Many local cities and counties have specialized funds available.  To find local funds search the internet by: Incumbent Workforce Training CITY or COUNTY (example: incumbent workforce training Sacramento County).

 

We hope this will be a beneficial resource for companies looking to lower the cost of doing business and keeping training costs to a minimum.
