State Funding for Training
CWED works in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and their Skills Development Fund. Since 1996, skills grants through TWC have helped 3,263 employers create more than 76,000 jobs and upgrade the skills of almost 209,000 workers.

Skills grants start with collaboration between:

Employers – a private business or business consortium in need of workforce training and funding assistance

Texas Workforce Commission – the Workforce Business Services Team connects businesses with college partners, a local workforce board, and economic development entities with project development and training

College Partner – a public community or technical college acts as the grant applicant, fiscal agent, and training coordinator

Local Workforce Development Board – the board collaborates with project development, identification of training partners, and assistance for businesses hiring new workers

Regional Economic Development Partners – a community organization that identifies new and expanding business that can benefit from a Skills Development Fund project

Collin College has received ten Texas Skills Development Fund grants totaling over $8 million in the past fourteen years.
