Receive Grant Money through the Going Pro Training Fund

Through the Detroit MBDA Business Center, we can help walk you through the grant application and maximize your company's chance of receiving up to $50,000 in talent development funding from the State of Michigan

About the Going Pro Training Fund

The Going Pro Training Fund (previously known as the Skilled Trades Training Fund) is a Michigan government grant that provides funding to companies for a variety of workforce training. The application officially goes live in September.  

The Going Pro Training Fund has made the difference between job expansion and layoff, protecting families and keeping communities strong. The STTF works with job providers to determine which skills are essential for growing staff capacity and business models. Targeted, high-quality training for new and existing workers creates opportunities for all.  

In our session, we’ll talk about:

  • The application process
  • Types of training that qualify
  • Grant requirements
  • Funding parameters
  • Any questions you bring to the conversation

With the funds, we were able to start a Maintenance Apprenticeship program to give one of our current employees a chance to move up within the organization. The employee is learning new things that he can use both at work and in his personal life as well.
