The Skills for Small Business is dedicated to the backbone of Texas’ business community – small employers. This exceptional opportunity supports businesses with fewer than 100 employees. It emphasizes training for new workers, and it may also help upgrade the skills of seasoned workers. The program pays up to $1,800 for each new employee trained and $900 for existing employees trained per 12-month period. Employers must pay the verifiable, prevailing wages in the local labor market for trainees funded under the grant.
