What is the Michigan New Jobs Training Program?
Designed as an economic development tool, the Michigan New Jobs Training Program allows community colleges to provide free training for employers that are creating new jobs and/or expanding operations in Michigan. The training for the newly hired workers is paid by capturing the state income tax associated with the new employees' wages.
This is a local program - individual community colleges work directly with employers and local economic development to support job creation. There are no restrictions by industry or employer size.
