New Funding Will Help Train Nearly 750 Michigan Businesses

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has a plan to revitalize the job market in Michigan that would possibly help 27,000 workers across the state secure employment.

Whitmer, along with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity announced that $47,000,000 in Going PRO Talent Fund grants to nearly 750 Michigan businesses. The funds will support their in-demand, high-skill talent needs. 

The Going PRO Talent Fund makes awards to employers to assist in training, developing and retaining current and newly hired employees. Training must fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer and lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry. 

Gov. Whitmer says, “Let’s keep our foot on the accelerator as we grow our economy, create unparalleled economic opportunity, and empower more people to make it in Michigan.”
