About NextLevel Jobs

NextLevel Jobs is part of Governor Holcomb's Next Level Agenda. The initiative focuses on high-priority sectors and high-demand jobs. Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the future workforce, and there will be millions of job openings due to retirements and the creation of new jobs in the next decade. NextLevel Jobs will help meet that challenge.


About the Employer Training Grant 2.0

Employers in any high-demand business sector can be reimbursed up to $5,000 for each newly trained employee, hired and retrained for six months. There is a $50,000 cap for each employer, and the jobs must be middle skill, high-demand high-wage jobs.

Employer Training Grants cover occupational skills training. Employers can use training providers on DWD's eligible training provider list or third-party providers. The training plan must verify that it's occupational skills training, aligns to an approved middle skills occupation, and is greater than 40 hours.

More than 100 occupations are eligible for Employer Training Grants, covering six priority sectors: Advanced Manufacturing; Agriculture; Building & Construction; Health Sciences; Information & Business Services; and Transportation & Logistics.
