Office of Continuing Education Extends Deadline for Proposals for 2017-18 Workforce Development Grant funds

July 05, 2017

The SUNY Adirondack Office of Continuing Education seeks proposals for 2017-18 SUNY Workforce Development Grant funds.

The grant provides funding for employee training projects at businesses within New York State and connects them with the workforce training resources at community colleges. 

Individual companies may apply, or groups of companies may apply as a consortium. Grant funds are expected to be released in September 2017, and eligible projects may begin any time after they are available. Projects must conclude by July 6, 2018. The deadline to apply for this competitive grant has been extended to Monday, July 31, 2017.

Any company with two or more employees within the college’s service area of Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga Counties are eligible to apply. First priority will be given to businesses that are newly relocated to New York State, businesses that are start-ups and those that are expanding their operations and/or creating new jobs.

Consideration will also be given to employers that seek to use training to: improve productivity, efficiency, effectiveness or profitability; maintain operations in New York or retain jobs; or show promise of increased sales, new products, or new markets. Small firms that would not be able to afford training without assistance and businesses that show clear links to the economic development objectives of the region will also be considered. The employer is required to commit to a percentage of matching funds.
