Going Pro Grant

The Going PRO Talent Fund, formerly known as the Skilled Trades Training Fund, makes awards to employers to assist in training, developing, and retaining current and newly hired employees. Training funded by Going PRO must be short-term and fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer. Training must also lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry.

The Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity - Workforce Development awards funds to employers through Michigan’s workforce system, commonly known as Michigan Works! Agencies (MWA). MWA Business Services staff conduct fact-finding sessions with employers to assess their talent skill gaps, suitable training providers, and availability of federal funding sources. The MWA Business Services staff then determines whether Talent Fund awards are appropriate to help close the skills gap and provide employers access to a convenient new online application submission process. Interested employers should engage their local MWA early to allow ample time for the fact-finding process to ensure applications are completed in time for review. Learn more about Going PRO.
