To apply for an SDF grant, administered by the Texas Workforce Commission, a private business, consortium of businesses or trade union must identify a training need and partner with a public community or technical college or the Texas Engineering Extension Service to address those specific needs. College partners work with businesses to submit proposals, develop curricula and conduct training. The SDF grant pays for the training, the college administers the grant, and businesses create new jobs and improve the skills of their current workers.
Eligible Travis County grant recipients must coordinate with the Workforce Solutions Capital Area Workforce Board in the development and design of the customized training project. Applicants are required to have their local Workforce Board review and comment on proposals prior to submission.
