$1,000,000 for CAMC Members!
Posted August 04, 2016

Are you interested in taking advantage of the Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) this year? If so, it's time to start planning! For the past three years, the state of Michigan has approved STTF funds for employers to train their employees. CAMC Members have been awarded over $1 MILLION dollars through this program!

New this year, the WDA will be implementing an application period. All applications will be reviewed and those that competitively scored until funds are exhausted the highest will be approved. We anticipate it to be highly competitive with requests exceeding available funding.

Please contact CAMC Executive Director Michelle Cordano, or CAMW! Business Liaison Jim Bunn ASAP if you plan to submit an STTF application for FY 16-17.
