Workforce Innovation Training Grant

Idea Category: Jobs and Entrepreneurship


In order to attract new jobs in the changing economy, workers need to have skills that match what businesses are looking for.


Franklin County’s WIT-G program incentivizes businesses to train additional new employees, allowing them to invest elsewhere while providing workers with quality jobs and the skills they need to work in expanding and evolving industries. Rather than training workers in general skills, the program works directly with companies to teach skills that are tailored to currently available jobs and carefully coordinates with city and state levels of government to avoid duplication with other initiatives"
