Black River Technical College offers grant writing services to eligible businesses and industries within Lawrence, the Western District of Clay, and Randolph counties.
EWTP for Internal Training
An employee from your business serves as the instructor, and the class can be at your facility or at ours. These courses usually last at least three hours. This type of grant will yield your company a tax credit certificate based upon $25/hour for instructor fees. This grant must be written by a college. Only manufacturing industries with certain NAICS codes are eligible for these grants.
EWTP for External Training
An instructor from outside your company is used, and the course includes at least 5 participants. This course lasts at least three hours, as well. This type of grant will yield your company direct reimbursement for up to 50% of the training cost, based on $100 per hour for instructor fees. This grant must be written by a college. Only manufacturing industries with certain NAICS codes are eligible for these grants.
Important Note — Ideally we need 3- 4 weeks notice before training begins, as the state department must receive the grant application at least 2 weeks before the scheduled training.
