Going PRO Talent Fund Information Session - Online

Northwest Michigan Works! will be holding two virtual Employer Information Sessions via Zoom Meetings to help businesses learn about the Going PRO Talent Fund, the application process, and the assistance available through Northwest Michigan Works! The information sessions will be held Wednesday, October 21, at 2:00 pm and Thursday, October 22, at 9:00 am.

The Going PRO Talent Fund (Talent Fund)  will offer $28.6 million dollars for businesses to train their workforce. The Talent Fund makes awards to employers to assist in training, developing and retaining current and newly hired employees. Training funded by the Talent Fund must be short-term and fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer. Training must lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry. Training can be provided for existing employees, new hires, or registered DOL apprentices.
