Ohio Incumbent Workforce Training Voucher Program
We have learned that the new Ohio Incumbent Worker Training Voucher Program will be announced sometime within the next 30 days (we were told by JobsOhio West that unfortunately there are no specific release dates at this time). This program is FIRST COME FIRST SERVE; there will be $20M available throughout the state in FY 13 and $30M available in FY 14. There is a cap of $4k per employee and $500k per federal tax ID #.
Companies will use the Ohio Means Jobs website: https://ohiomeansjobs.com/omj/ to register for the program. For this particular program, a company will have to fill out an application online; there will not be an option to upload a spread sheet or other documents. As you will read in the attached document, there are certain requirements for an employer and employee to be eligible for the program.
If you choose to pursue the program, the most important thing you can do at this time is gather and prepare all the information on the second page of the attached document (click here for the attachment), which details application requirements. We will make sure that you learn when the online, web-based application is available for you to fill out.
