Grant Opportunities

Workforce Grants

Blackhawk takes great pride in helping employers pay for workforce training through grant opportunities and other partnerships. Grant opportunities are often designed to connect employers with technical colleges to provide training support in high demand fields.

In recent years, Blackhawk has secured funding for professional development boot camps in Culinary Arts, Welding, Computer Numerical Control and other high-demand fields. Our extensive experience makes us the right partner to guide you through the project funding process. We can help you identify possible grant opportunities, assess your program’s eligibility and even review your application.

Consider these grant opportunities:

The Wisconsin Technical College System awards funds each year to Wisconsin businesses seeking market expansion, business diversification or an upgrade of their employees’ skills. These grants aim to promote the development of incumbent workers, improve Wisconsin businesses’ productivity and competitiveness, augment the state’s economic base, support career pathways, and expand technical college training.

Wisconsin Fast Forward is a $15 million grant program for employer-led, customized worker training projects. The goal is to provide essential assistance that cannot be found through an existing program. Grants are awarded to maximize the impact of local collaboration and help communities build sustainable employment pipelines that directly address employer needs.
