Indiana Next Level Jobs Program Sees Expansion
Wednesday, July 8, 2020

With the continued presence of COVID-19 being still on everyone's mind, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has taken yet even more steps to give Hoosiers a sense of security and this time its in the expanding of the state’s Next Level Jobs program.

According to Inside INdiana Business, the two programs that make up the initiative will increase eligibility, offerings, and funding caps through the end of the year thanks to nearly $40-million in federal CARES Act funding.

More than $20-million will be dedicated towards a Workforce Ready Grant to provide free training to at least 10,000 Hoosiers in high-demand fields.

An Employer Training Grant will also be expanded, with $5-million allocated specifically to businesses owned by minorities, women, and veterans.
