Grant and Training Opportunities

Better workers and better facilities deliver more value, but the initial capital investment can be off-putting. CDO Workforce Career System can help.

We maintain a network of sources for grants and training to help you invest in your own growth.

On-the-Job Training

(OJT) Program provides companies with an incentive to hire, train, and upgrade individuals who may lack the skills and/or experience for a particular job.

CDO’s program has written grants for assemblers, machine operators, computer technicians, welders, insurance technicians and other professions.

Key points:

  • On-the-Job Training is appropriate for occupations where classroom training is not available or not appropriate and for which specific job skills can be learned while engaged in productive work.
  • On-the-Job Training should result in productive long-term employment.
  • Companies are reimbursed half of the total wages paid to the trainee during a normal work period.
  • The trainee’s skill gap will determine the length of training and the amount of reimbursement.
  • OJT funding requires a signed contract prior to the start of the individual’s employment.

Other Training Resources

CDO Workforce also provides:

  • Work readiness training
  • Reading and math skills
  • English as a Second Language programs
