Incumbent Worker Training Grants

The Rivers East Workforce Development Board provides funding to assist employers seeking to “skill up” their existing workforce as a result of changes to production processes or market demands. Training grants are now available in increments up to $10,000 for companies with 12-months residence in North Carolina, and for incumbent workers with six-months or more on the job.  Rivers East Workforce Development Board works in partnership with the NCWorks Customized Industry Training Program, and third-party trainers to provide funding for job-specific training associated with an industry.

Call Jennie Bowen, Workforce Development Board Director at 252-974-1815 today to learn more about  the program.
