State Rep. Ann Bollin today announced two local businesses will receive Going PRO Talent Fund grants.
The competitive grants, which help employers train new and existing employees, are a critical part of Michigan’s efforts to help local businesses secure the in-demand, high-skill talent they need to grow while giving local workers a path to high-wage careers.
Martin Technologies in New Hudson will receive a $12,231 grant. Action Tool and Machine in Brighton will receive a $7,850 grant.
“Certain industries have plenty of good-paying jobs available, but employers just can’t find people with the skills needed to fill them,” Bollin said. “These grants help businesses bridge the skills gap and effectively train workers for jobs that are in demand. This is instrumental in shaping a better economic future and empowering more Michigan residents to secure meaningful employment opportunities, supporting their families along the way.”
Statewide, approximately $13.5 million in grants from the second cycle of Fiscal Year 2023 Going PRO Talent Fund were recently awarded to 300 Michigan businesses to help approximately 8,500 workers secure employment, industry-recognized credentials and strong wages.
