Employee Training Funds Available for Oregon Businesses

Businesses in on the Oregon-side of the Gorge in need of funds to support trainings for current employees are invited to submit proposals to EC Works by March 16 for the next round of consideration. EC Works will fund proposals that present an opportunity for employers to build and maintain a quality workforce and increase the competitiveness of both employees and their business(es), while creating new employment opportunities. 

EC Works pays particular attention to training that provides current employees an opportunity for advancement and wage gains within their company, as well as those that create opportunities to backfill positions with new employees. Employers are encouraged to partner with their local WorkSource center in identifying potential candidates for backfill opportunities. 

EC Works will consider proposals that include a request of a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $25,000. The total amount available is $75,000. Learn more.
