Minnesota Manufacturing Training Programs

April 2019

As a firm that has represented manufacturers throughout the years, we have found that training programs through the Minnesota Jobs Skill Partnership have tremendously helped manufacturing companies and their employees to retrain manufacturing workers and expand work opportunities for potential employees.

Below are a few of the DEED Training Grant Programs that the State provides with links and a brief overview of how these programs could help your manufacturing business.

  • Partnership Program – provides grants of up to $400,000 to businesses that partner with a Minnesota educational institution to develop new-job training or retraining for existing employees.
  • Pathways Program – provides grants of up to $400,000 to businesses that partner with a Minnesota educational institution or nonprofit organization to provide training, new jobs, and career paths for low-income people.
  • Job Training Incentive Program – provides training grants of up to $200,000 to new or expanding businesses located in Greater Minnesota.
  • Low-Income Worker Training Program – provides grants of up to $200,000 to Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit entities that provide employment services to low-income individuals.
