Current Worker Training Grants Available!

Willamette Workforce Partnership (WWP) believes it is very important for businesses to have the resources needed to ensure their current workforce is trained and prepared to navigate the challenges they face in this uncertain time. To assist in this, WWP has grants available for businesses to train their existing workforce, Incumbent Worker Training Grants. Eligible businesses must be located in our region of Linn, Marion, Polk or Yamhill County Oregon. When considering funding decisions, the number of employees being trained and the dollar amount requested will be considered. These funds cannot be used to pay for an owner or employer to provide the training to employees. Also not allowed is funding anything considered capital like computers or other equipment.

In response to the current economic situation, we have increased the maximum grant amount to $25,000 per application.CLICK HERE TO APPLY
