How to Apply
Businesses interested in applying for Incumbent Workforce Development Program (IWDP) funding can develop a training proposal in conjunction with their local Workforce Development Board (WDB). The local WDB is responsible for administration, oversight, reporting and monitoring the Program.
Employers should contact their local Workforce Development Board for a brief program orientation, prior to completing the application. This gives the company and the appropriate local board staff the opportunity to do the following:
- Review the IWDP Guidelines.
- Highlight criteria.
- Discuss training priorities and needs.
- Discuss the time schedule for application submission.
- Explain the contracting and cost reimbursement process.
Local Workforce Development Boards have an established deadline for the submission of applications to their offices. Execution of the review process does not imply a start date for training; and the local board will notify applicants in writing when training may begin.
