The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Workforce Development Board has awarded companies nearly 100 grants worth a total of $2.2 million since 2002, grants that officials say have helped train and educate more than 6,400 employees in the county.
With applications due in September for another round of funding, even more grants are expected to be awarded.
The grants, part of the state’s Incumbent Workforce Development Program, are awarded in three rounds each year, said Craig Cole, business services manager with the Workforce Development Board. The funds are limited, and the maximum amount is $25,000 per grant, with a lifetime funding limit of $40,000.
The Workforce Development Board, which provides policy, planning and oversight for work force development programs, evaluates the grant applications.
