ARPA Workforce Training Grants
Montana Department of Commerce
The Montana Department of Commerce has launched a Workforce Training Grant Program to provide $10 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to Montana nonprofit and for-profit businesses for skill-based training of new and existing employees.
Eligible nonprofits (those that are Montana-based who are in good standing with the Montana Secretary of State or Tribal Government) may apply directly to the program and can receive up to $3,000 per eligible employee, with a maximum allocation of $210,000. Each eligible employee must make a wage that meets or exceeds 170 percent of Montana’s current minimum wage, which today is $14.88 per hour.
Applications are accepted on an open cycle. Applications are funded on a first come-first served basis. Application must be received 10 days prior to the Montana Economic Transformation, Stabilization & Workforce Development Advisory Commission meetings to be considered for funding during that month.
