Train to Work Initiative

Train to Work Initiative Policies and Procedures

The Train to Work Initiative is designed to help businesses in Delaware County with the exorbitant cost of training new hires.  Equally important, it is also designed as a hiring incentive to create more opportunities for Delaware County residents to learn new skills and obtain employment in their own community.

Employers are eligible for up to $5000 in reimbursements for full time hires and up to $2500 for part time hires per participant.  There are two programs available within this initiative. The total potential reimbursement is based on the length and level of training needed for participants to be trained for the new position. The criteria for what program is available is based on the level of training needed for a business to bring on the new hire and program eligibility will be determined at the discretion of the Delaware County Local Development Corporation (LDC).

All contacted positions must be expected to provide at least 6 months of continuous employment. Temporary positions will not be considered.
