RBC I Grant dollars are available at Rio Blanco, Routt, Moffat, Grand and Jackson counties’ Workforce Centers across Colorado’s Northwest Region.
Grant dollars have been provided to the Workforce Centers by the U.S. Department of Labor, designed to help workers update their job skills and acquire new skills so they can return to the job market.
Those grant dollars also benefit employers across that five-county region. On-the-job training grants are reimbursed directly to employers up to one-half of a trainee’s gross wages for the duration of the training period. The program can be customized for skilled and semi-skilled jobs, and employers can use their own training to teach new employees, ensuring the program will deliver the results they need.
Included in the program for the employer are free screening, assessment and referrals of applicants.
The employer makes the final hiring decision, determines job performance standards and has the right to terminate a trainee if necessary.
