Incumbent Worker Training Grants

Incumbent Worker Training Grants (IWG) are designed to meet the special requirement of an employer to retain a skilled workforce or avert the need to lay off employees by assisting the workers in obtaining the skills necessary to retain employment.  All grants are funded through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  Provided funding is available, the Rivers East Workforce Development Board (WDB) will designate funds each program year to IWGs.  For more information, see the Policy and Guidelines below.
