The Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) Skills Development Fund program has launched a special COVID-19 initiative. Texas businesses impacted by COVID-19 may receive training for existing employees and new hires through partnerships with training providers. There is a total of $10 million available in grant funds for eligible training provider applicants that can respond to training needs of business partners. Eligible applicants include public community and technical colleges, Workforce Development Boards and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX). The program staff works with businesses and training providers to support application development and submission. For more information, download the program PDF flyer, or visit the TWC website.
