Skills for Small Business Training

The Texas Workforce Commission Skills for Small Business program, up to $2 million from the Skills Development Fund is dedicated to the backbone of Texas’ business community—our small employers. Small businesses can apply to TWC for training offered by Texarkana College. This exceptional opportunity supports businesses with fewer than 100 employees and emphasizes training for new workers, though it may also help upgrade the skills of incumbent workers.

  • Skills for Small Business emphasizes training newly hired employees, those who have been hired by the business up to twelve months prior to the date that TWC receives an application.
  • The program pays up to $1,800 for each new employee to train and $900 for existing employees, per 12-month period.
  • Funding for training is for full-time employees.
  • All training must be provided by a public community or technical college, or the Texas Engineering Extension Service. No third-party vendor training is allowed.
  • Training must be selected from active course catalogs/schedules—credit, continuing education, online or other available unpublished courses.
  • Employers must pay the prevailing wages on the local labor market for the trainees funded under the grant.
