Skilled Trades Training Fund-A Snapshot

Implemented in 2014 by Governor Snyder and the Legislature, the Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) helps employers meet their talent needs. Four years later, the STTF is on track to train over 50,000 workers with more than 1,400 employers taking advantage of the program.  Since its inception, Michigan Works! West Central has helped secure nearly $2,000,000 for 45 different companies in our six-county service area! That equates to the training of more than 2,000 workers, including funding for 47 U.S. Department of Labor registered apprenticeships! 

Here are the companies benefitting from STTF funding through applications filed by Michigan Works! West Central and also a partial list of just some of the trainings that have been approved and funded! If you are an employer interested in taking advantage of this grant, contact Merri Bennett at
