Workforce Grants

Triton College is your best advocate for securing grant funding for your workforce training needs. We partner with organizations in our community to determine their long-term training needs and continually scan the grant funding environment for eligible funds. Grant programs exist at the federal or state level and allocate funds to address the needs of a specific industries, incumbent worker skills or new technologies so organizations can increase their competitiveness in this global economy.

At the state level, Illinois offers the Employer Training Investment Program (ETIP). According to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, ETIP supports Illinois workers’ efforts to upgrade their skills in order to remain current in new technologies and business practices, enabling companies to remain competitive, expand into new markets and introduce more efficient technologies into their operations. ETIP grants may reimburse Illinois companies for up to 50 percent of the cost of training their employees.
