SANFORD — The Triangle South Workforce Development Board (TSWDB) is accepting applications for its T3 (Training Today’s Teams) Grant for Incumbent Workers.

The TSWDB provides funding through its T3 Grant for Incumbent Workers to allow businesses with five or more employees operating in the Triangle South local area (Chatham, Harnett, Lee, and Sampson counties) to “skill-up” their existing workforce to meet the challenges of changes to production processes or market demands. The maximum amount is $5,000 per grant, and $10,000 per program year, with a lifetime funding limit of $50,000.

The “skill-ups” that are addressed in a grant application can be a result of changing market conditions, a worker(s) changing responsibilities/requirements in her/his job, or for enhancement to production or services as part of the applicant organization’s operations. The TSWDB T3 Grant for Incumbent Workers will result in workers with increased knowledge, certifications, and/or value to the company.

Eligibility is limited to North Carolina for-profit and not-for-profit businesses, with five or more employees, that have been in operation in North Carolina for a minimum of one year prior to the semi-annual submission deadline date, are current on all federal and state tax obligations and are financially viable, are eligible to apply. Triangle South T3 Incumbent Worker Training Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Applications are available upon request from the Triangle South Workforce Development Board office. The application is a part of the T3 Grant for Incumbent Workers policy.

T3 Grants are awarded on a competitive, as-needed basis and are dependent upon the availability of funding. T3 Grant Applications will be accepted from Monday, May 17th until Monday, June 16th. Applicants should expect to be notified on their application status in July 2021.

For more information on this program, or to request an application, businesses can contact a member of the Triangle South Business Outreach team: Norman Collins can be reached at 919-704-6655, or by email at ncollins@cccc.edu; Jessica Ingram can be reached at 919-895-0302 or by email at jtingram@cccc.edu.
