Rapid Recovery Program Expansion

Federal funding through the CARES Act has enabled the temporary expansion of Next Level Jobs as part of the Rapid Recovery for a Better Future initiative. Employers can qualify for individual training programs up to $100,000 per employer. The Rapid Recovery Expansion program will expire December 30, 2020.

Businesses interested in applying to become an authorized training provider for the Next Level Jobs program and eligible for Workforce Ready Grant (WRG) funding must follow a simple, two-step process. First, they must apply to be placed on the INTraining Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL). All INTraining ETPL applicants are vetted by Indiana’s INTraining staff. Once approved, they qualify to complete the WRG Training Provider Application. The Department of Workforce Development processes and approves all applications and will communicate next steps to approved providers.
