The Texas Workforce Commission has made up to $5 million available for employers to provide qualified training for current employees through the Upskill Texas initiative. 

Employers with 100 or more employees, including publicly funded healthcare employers, or their designee, are invited to apply for funds to identify and deploy qualified training for employees. To be eligible, employees must have worked for the employer for six months or more. However, the training may be provided to a group of employees; in which case, most of the employees in a training group must have worked for the employer for six months or more. 

Funding is made available through Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act federal grant funds and individual awards will range from $150,000-$500,000. Employers must provide at least 50% of the training costs, which could include trainee wages.

TWC will accept applications for the Upskill Texas grant from April 4, 2023 – June 5, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. CDT.
