Dear Friends:

DLLR Secretary Kelly Schultz

DLLR Secretary Kelly Schultz

I was speaking with DLLR Secretary Kelly Schultz Monday at MEDA, and she asked me to reach out to manufacturers about Maryland Business Works, a program that covers 50% of the cost of training for workers in companies with 100 or fewer employees. Last year, I had a conversation with her about the need to have funding for training workers. Kelly stepped up to the plate and and knocked it out of the ball park with Maryland Business Works!

The deadline is approaching so apply today. Call me if you need help getting connected or for more info. 410-771-8111

Maryland Business Works Covers 50% of Employee Training Cost for Manufacturers

The Maryland Department of Labor is eager to partner with Maryland’s businesses to support employer strategies for retention, growth and, expansion with this substantial initial investment of $500,000 in business engagement funds.
This project requires a dollar-for-dollar match by the employer, which allows for an overall investment of $1 million in incumbent worker training.

There is a $4,500 training cap funding level that may be awarded to a specific trainee for a project or series of projects during a program year running from July 1 through June 30 each year with a $40,000 funding cap for awards to a specific employer for a project or series of projects during the program year.
