Labor And Workforce Development Assistance Programs


Administered by the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development (DOL), these competitive grants are available to upgrade the skills of workers to ensure that New Jersey employers are more competitive in the global economy. Grant allocations may be applied to the direct cost of training (training vendor fees, training supplies, etc.) as well as the partial reimbursement of wages of workers participating in the training. Awards are capped at $50,000 for companies with 250 employees or fewer and $75,000 for companies with 250 employees or more and can range up to $1,000 per employee trained depending on the complexity and term of the training.
