Training Acceleration Grants (TAG)

USI Extended Services Organizational and Professional Development Group is partnering with the local Workforce Development office to assist organizations with applying for training grants.   

Training Acceleration Grants (TAG) were created out of the Incumbent Worker Training Fund and are administered through a partnership between Indiana Department of Workforce Development and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.  TAG provides financial assistance to companies and organizations committed to expanding the skills of their existing workforce through training that results in a transferable and industry-recognized credential.  Grants may not exceed $200,000 over a two- year period and require a match based on the number of employees.   

Requests should be limited to an average of $3,500 per employee per year or $7,000 over a two year period.  The match requirements are as follows:
