New from Minnesota Job Skills Partnership: Automation Training Incentive Pilot Program
25 Feb 2020
The Automation Training Incentive Pilot Program offers grants up to $25,000 to Minnesota businesses that have 100 or fewer full-time employees, are in the manufacturing or skilled assembly production industry, and have recently invested in new automation technology or plans to invest in new automation technology.
The training is for existing jobs that provide at least 32 hours of work per week for a minimum of nine months a year and pay wages of at least equal 120% of the federal poverty guidelines for a family of four (currently $30,900 per year). The automation must not result in the dislocation of workers.
