Texas Skills Development Fund Grant

If you are a Texas employer and have a desire to collaborate with other partners and are committed to seeing a project through then the Skills Development Fund is something for your business to look into.

How does it work?

A business, consortium of businesses, or trade union identifies a training need, and then partners with a public Community or Technical college to fill its specific needs. Businesses work with college partners to submit proposals, develop curricula and conduct training. The Skills Development Fund pays for the training, the college administers the grant, and businesses create new jobs and improve the skills of their current workers.
