North Dakota Department of Commerce is now accepting applications for the Technical Skills Training Grant
19 Oct 2023
The North Dakota Department of Commerce today announced that the application window for the Technical Skills Training Grant program is now open.
The continuation of the grant program was part of Gov. Doug Burgum’s Accelerate ND plan, which contained his executive recommendations to the state Legislature for strategically investing federal funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). During the 68th Legislative Session, $2 million was appropriated to support eligible training providers and employers in their efforts to design and launch rapid, non-degree re-skilling and upskilling programs.
The Technical Skills Training Grant program aims to offset the cost for program providers and employers in their efforts to support the development of highly trained skilled workers to meet the demands of our labor market. The grant program funds will be awarded until all allocated funds are extinguished.
