Grants starting at $750 to New Hampshire businesses to provide employees with training at local community colleges. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying to assess training needs and available training programs. Eligible costs may include, but are not limited to, structured, on-site laboratory or classroom training, basic skills, technical skills, quality improvement, safety, management and supervision, and English as a second language.
The minimum grant allowed is $750. The maximum grant that can be requested is $100,000.
Any grant award of $70,000 or more has to be approved by the Governor and Executive Council, which will add at least one month to the process before training can begin.
The Job Training Fund is available to businesses located in New Hampshire and businesses intending to locate in the State, and who pay quarterly taxes into the NH Unemployment Trust Fund. (Businesses that make voluntary (reimbursable) contributions are not eligible.)
Temporary worker agencies will be categorized as the employer of record if they are contracting with a company to supply temporary workers, and as such must meet the requirements of a company in good standing. The temporary worker agency must be included in the application as a Co-Applicant.
Employees who are either residents of New Hampshire, or who work at the business that is located or intends to locate within the state, can receive training from the fund.
-Local, county, and state political subdivisions are not eligible for the program.
-Unallowable costs include: Salaries, wages, bonuses, and benefits of employees in training; In-kind contributions; administrative or entertainment expenses; and costs resulting from violation of or failure to comply with federal, state, or local laws and regulations; and costs or portions of costs resulting from training programs completed or started prior to the date of grant approval.
-Consultant work leading up to training cannot be funded, nor will any consultant work as part of the description of services or scope of work be funded by the Job Training Fund share of the grant. The applicant assumes all costs of consultant work.
-Funds for training grants shall supplement and not replace funds available through existing programs conducted by the business entity, or other public or private training programs. This fund does not cover training programs required by state or federal law, and does not replace established company programs such as tuition reimbursement programs; OSHA required training; renewals for licenses required by state or federal government agencies.
A minimum 1:1 cash match is required. Ineligible matching funds include salaries, wages bonuses and benefits of employees in training; in-kind contributions; administrative or entertainment expenses; and costs resulting from violations of, or failure to comply with federal, state or local laws and regulations.
All Program Development Costs must be itemized and such costs are limited to 20% of instructor fees and the Job Training Fund is for skills training only.
Job Training Fund applicant companies must first review their training needs with Mr. Phil Przybyszewski. With seven campuses and an advanced manufacturing training center in Rochester, companies have an opportunity to upgrade their workers' skills with a variety of courses through CCSNH. In addition, the Business and Training Director at each campus can customize training for the specific needs of a company. Training can take place on-site or on-campus.
In the event your local community college does not or can not provide the training you want for your employees, Mr. Przybyszewski will provide a waiver and you can seek another training vendor to fit your needs.
Upcoming 2016 Deadlines:
-October 21 2016 for consideration at the November 18, 2016 meeting
-November 23, 2016 for consideration at the December 16, 2016 meeting
