Health Care and Human Services Training Program
Our main training grant option, the Partnership program focuses on providing training for both new and existing employees of participating businesses.
Minnesota participating businesses must partner with an accredited Minnesota educational institution. Grants of up to $400,000 are awarded to the educational institution to develop and deliver training specific to the business needs. A cash or in-kind contribution from the participating business must match grant funds on at least a one-to-one basis.
A short-form application is available for grants of up to $50,000.
Projects average one to three years in duration.
Use of Funds
Funds may be used for training-related costs such as curriculum development, instruction, training materials and supplies, training equipment, and instructor travel. Requests for wage subsidies and tuition reimbursements are NOT eligible. However, wages paid to employees during training may be counted towards the required matching contribution.
Applications are accepted on a year-round basis. Grants, pending the availability of funding, are generally reviewed and approved two to three times per year by the Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Board.
