Employers can also take advantage of the Employer Training Grant program from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. Employers in any high demand business sectors can be reimbursed up to $2,500 for each new employee that is trained, hired and retained for 6 months. There is a $25,000 cap for each employer and the jobs must be middle skill, high-demand and high-wage jobs that require more than a high school diploma but less than an associate degree.
The Employer Training Grant is available to employers in six priority sectors aligned with Indiana’s economy: Advanced Manufacturing, Building & Construction, Health Sciences, Information Technology & Business Services, Transportation & Logistics, and Agriculture. Within those sectors, the grant pays for training associated with the most in-demand “middle skills” occupations – those defined as requiring more than a high school diploma but less than an associate’s degree.
