Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF)

The Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) program provides competitive awards to employers for training leading to increased employee productivity and increased competitiveness of Michigan businesses. Approximately $20 million will be available this fall to assist employers with skilled trades training.

Here are a few examples of skilled trades training utilized by our local companies: 

Since STTF's inception in 2014, we have helped secure nearly $900,000 in STTF funding for our employers, which equates to almost 1,000 workers receiving skilled trades training (new hires AND current employees)! 

The grant process is very competitive, so a complete and accurate application is critical. We will help you through the process every step of the way! The current application period has closed. If you have questions contact Business Services Director Merri Bennett.
