NextLevel Jobs Employer Training Grant
The Employer Training Grant (ETG) reimbursement is an innovative initiative. The ETG is one of two grants that are part of the State of Indiana's NextLevel Jobs program. Launched in August 2017, NextLevel Jobs is an initiative of the Governor's Office implemented by the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Commission for Higher Education (CHE). DWD has had full responsibility of the ETG portion of NextLevel Jobs since its inception, and the results have been impressive over 16 months. The ETG was created to help employers provide occupational skill training for their employees who have been trained and retained for six months. Currently employers can be reimbursed up to $5,000 for each newly-trained employees with a cap of $50,000 per employer.
