$48.5 Million in Training Funds Available to Texas Companies

October 13, 2015 by Midlothian Economic Development


Thanks to the Texas Workforce Commission’s Skills Development Fund (SDF), Texas companies are benefitting from access to targeted, customized training for employees.

Implemented in 1996, the Skills Development Fund Program is the state’s premier job training program.

It allows employers to identify workforce skills gaps and community colleges to subsequently develop and deliver targeted training to employees.

By connecting companies with local community colleges, workforce development boards, and economic development partners, this program helps employers address workforce needs efficiently and effectively.

Customization spans curriculum development, delivery, and location of training, which is often held on-site at the business.

Educational Support & Ample Opportunities

Companies considering relocating or expanding operations to the North Texas community of Midlothian will discover a tremendous educational support system in the area and ample opportunities for SDF assistance.

The affluent Dallas-Fort Worth suburb is home to the Midlothian Higher Education Center (MHEC), of which Navarro College is one of four academic partners. Additionally, Midlothian offers convenient proximity to Texas State Technical College in nearby Red Oak and Hill College in Cleburne.

All three community colleges are available to partner with area businesses to improve workforce efficiency.

In the current funding cycle, $48.5 million is available for quality SDF grants. Grant applications are accepted year-round and both new and existing employees are eligible for training.
