NCWorks Training Grants

NCWorks Incumbent Worker Training Grants

Do your existing employees need to upgrade their skills? If so, your company may be eligible for an Incumbent Worker Training Grant. Employers can utilize this competitive training solution when an employee has an identified skills gap that could be addressed through training because these employees:

  • Need to upgrade skills and knowledge to retain their current job; or
  • Need to gain new skills and knowledge so they qualify for a different job with their employer.

Each qualified employer can be awarded up to $15,000 per year in training reimbursement.


NCWorks On-the-Job Training Grants

On-the-Job Training (OJT) helps businesses offset training costs while filling skilled positions and creating new job opportunities. Employers receive assistance with recruiting talent, while creating a viable pathway for unemployed workers.

  • Through the federally-funded OJT program, businesses are offered a wage reimbursement incentive to help offset the cost of training new employees with limited skills.
  • Wage reimbursement may range from 50% to 75%, depending on the size of the business and other factors.
