Grant Funded Training

The State of Arkansas supports business and industry training through a variety of programs. As programs become available, the information will be posted on this page.

The grant program currently available is the Existing Workforce Training Program (EWTP).  EWTP reimburses business and industry for incumbant worker training.  The primary purpose of the Existing Workforce Training Program is to provide financial assistance in the form of a direct grant or an income tax credit to Arkansas business and industry for the delivery of customized, industry specific training to upgrade the knowledge and skills of the existing workforce or a potential new workforce and to increase the capacity of state-supported educational institutions to supply the on-going training needs of Arkansas companies.
