We draw from multiple internal and external resources to address knowledge and skills gaps across a wide variety of industries. Then we work with businesses to evaluate the possibility of grant-funded training solutions.  

Our efforts helped nearly 3,800 employees expand their skills.

We can write the grant application for you. Minnesota Job Skills Partnership grants, for example, are written by the university on behalf of the business. 

When you apply for job-training grants on your own, we can help you identify the right training fit for your company.
