Job Training Grant Programs
Colorado FIRST / Existing Industry Customized Training Programs
The Colorado First and Existing Industry grants are jointly administered by OEDIT and the Colorado Community College System. Colorado First grants are for companies that are relocating to Colorado, or existing companies that are undertaking a major expansion. Existing Industry grants are designed for Colorado companies that are implementing new technology to remain competitive and keep jobs in Colorado. Approved training is for transferable job skills that support both the company’s economic competitiveness by re-training its workers in new skills, while enhancing the workers’ resumes and long-term employment opportunities.
Colorado First grant applications are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the fiscal year. Existing Industry Grant applications are reviewed in a competitive process by the administering agencies twice per fiscal year.
