Regional businesses are encouraged to apply for a SUNY Workforce Development Training Grant through SUNY Adirondack's Office of Continuing Education.

The grant is designed to support customized employee training projects at businesses within the state of New York and connect companies with the workforce training resources at community colleges. It is part of the larger Workforce Development Initiative awarded through the Consolidated Funding Application.

Individual companies in Warren, Washington and/or northern Saratoga counties may apply, or groups of companies may apply as a consortium. 

Applications for the competitive grant will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are depleted or training project timelines are no longer viable. Projects must conclude by June 30, 2020. 

Employers are required to commit to a percentage of matching funds.
