Funding Assistance

The centerpiece of the KCTCS workforce and economic development efforts is the KCTCS-TRAINS program. Through KCTCS-TRAINS, we can work with you to provide the training your employees need to keep you competitive in today's global economy.  

With KCTCS-TRAINS, companies that qualify receive funding to assist with the cost of providing workforce training and assessment services to current as well as potential employees. These funds are distributed on a project basis and require your company to pay 50% of the project cost and a 10% administrative fee.

Our staff will assist companies in developing training plans and applying for KCTCS-TRAINS funding.

You may apply individually or as a training network with other companies. The training networks meet common training needs of business and industry from various sectors of the economy. The network approach is successful because companies who only need one or two employees trained are able to join with other companies to obtain cost-effective and timely training.
