Starting July 1, 2017, the Workforce Development Training Fund (WDTF) moves into a new funding cycle. Demand for WDTF Business Training Grant dollars remains high while budget reductions have significantly impacted the availability of funds.
Due to the limited funding, the WDTF will be implementing monthly and annual business caps. Effective August 1, 2017, a business entity will not be able to receive more than $10,000 per month and $50,000 per fiscal year in WDTF grant monies. This new policy was approved by the Wyoming Workforce Development Council to allow more equitable access to WDTF funding.
On July 1, 2017, the WDTF will continue to have $110,000 in total grant money to distribute each month, and will open its online application portal at 9 a.m. the first business day of each month. Once the $110,000 has been exhausted, the Business Training Grant application portal will close until the first business day of the following month.
Your feedback is valued. As we continue to look at the WDTF process and program revisions, the WDTF team would appreciate hearing from you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Carmalee Rose at (307) 777-8717 with questions or comments.
