MNJTP Overview

Michigan New Jobs Training Program

The Michigan New Jobs Training Program is a local economic development initiative serving employers since 2008. The program authorizes community colleges to temporarily capture the state income tax withholding associated with newly hired workers to pay for training.

If your company is planning on expanding and adding new jobs in the state of Michigan, the program can provide the flexible funding to meet an assortment of employee training and development needs specifically designed for your business.

There is NO RESTRICTION on employer size or industry, and funds can be used for a broad range of training (from short-term contract training to certificates and degrees).
