Skills Development Fund

Do you need to add employees with new skills or train your current staff for the new market? The Texas Workforce Commission administers the Skills Development Fund program, which provides state funds to respond directly to the workforce needs of Texas employers.

The Skills Development Fund is Texas’ premier job-training program providing training dollars for Texas businesses and workers. With these funds, customized training helps to ensure the current workforce stays up-to-date to keep businesses competitive and new workers are trained with the skills industries require. The Skills Development Fund successfully merges business needs and local training opportunities into a winning formula to increase the skill levels and wages of the Texas workforce.

Companies that meet set requirements and complete a grant application can be eligible to receive a SDF grant.

For more information about grants and compliance, please call 972-860-4603.

Self-Sufficiency Fund

The Self-Sufficiency Fund Program, administered by the Texas Workforce Commission, assists businesses by designing, financing and implementing customized job training programs in partnership with public community and technical colleges, higher education extension services and community-based organizations for the creation of new jobs and/or the retraining of existing workforce. The goal of the Self-Sufficiency Fund is to assist recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program or a parent, including a noncustodial parent whose annual wages are at or below $37,000, to obtain training, get jobs and become independent of government financial assistance.
