Did you know Next Level Jobs provides free training for Hoosiers and reimbursements for Indiana employers for training employees in high-demand fields?
Next Level Jobs is part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda to continue the positive momentum of our state. Under his leadership with support from the General Assembly, Indiana is taking the state’s workforce to the next level with a focus on the high-priority industries and high-demand jobs driving Indiana’s 21st Century economy forward.
Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the 21st Century workforce, and there will be over 1 million job openings in Indiana due to retirements and the creation of new jobs in the next decade. Whether you’re a Hoosier looking for a better-paying job or an employer looking for a better-skilled workforce, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative can help.
Employers in any high demand business sector can be reimbursed up to $5,000 for each newly trained employee, hired and retained for six months. There is a $50,000 cap for each employer (based on your FEIN) and the jobs must be middle skill, high-demand and high-wage jobs. Employer Training Grants cover occupational skills training, and also include not only new employees but existing employees who receive training that leads to increased work responsibilities and higher wages.
The new round of Employer Training Grants will begin accepting new applications effective July 1, 2019.
IHCA/INCAL members are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to enroll in the Employer Training Grant program.

The Workforce Ready Grant is designed to remove financial barriers that may prevent Hoosiers from getting the training they need for a job in one of Indiana’s 5 high-demand fields. The grant pays for all tuition and regularly assessed fees for qualifying high-value certificates. It can be used at any eligible training provider and covers all courses required to satisfy the qualifying program. The grant is available for up to two (2) years.
