$10M Skilled Trades Training Fund Information Sessions for Employers


Please join Northwest Michigan Works! Business Services at an Information Session to learn how to apply for the Michigan Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) that begins on October 1, 2014.

The STTF supports training for new hires, current workers, and apprentices in high-demand occupations (and not just the trades, despite the name).

Applications for funding will be accepted by Northwest Michigan Works! Business Services starting Wednesday, October 1.

Attend an Information Session to learn about the application process, get tips to make your application competitive, and to schedule a one-on-one follow-up appointment with your Business Liaison to prepare your application.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
