The Ohio Development Services Agency (DSA) has announced it is making available the second round of Incumbent Worker Training Vouchers. These awards reimburse employers or employees for up to $4,000 per employee of workforce development efforts. The first round, which included $20 million in awards released in January 2013, disappeared in less than 24 hours. Ohio’s recently passed budget bill provides up to $30 million for such awards in the current fiscal year. $27 million will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, while the remaining $3 million will be used for loans. Grant program applications will be accepted for review on Sept. 30. Stay tuned to DevelopOhio for more updates about this exciting new opportunity for Ohio businesses.
