State Training Grants Available to Unemployed Workers

Published: 07/02/2020

As part of Missouri's Return Strong initiative, the Office of Workforce Development wants to prepare Missourians for the day their unemployment benefits may expire. There are federal funds available to provide short-term training for many of these job seekers, up to $4,000 in grant funding per person. 

These funds can be used at St. Charles Community College to enroll in a short-term training opportunity or earn a certificate or industry-recognized credential. See the full list of eligible programs.

“We want Missourians to enter the workforce better prepared and more skilled than when they left,” said Mardy Leathers, director of the Missouri Office of Workforce Development. “Although we hope most layoffs are temporary, some will likely be permanent. Our team is ready to help Missourians take this opportunity to skill up, and get back to work.”
