On Monday, March 2nd, the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce’s CareerEdge workforce initiative will open their annual request for proposal (RFP) process soliciting plans from manufacturing, healthcare, insurance, and skilled trades employers in Manatee and Sarasota Counties. CareerEdge is seeking grant applications that show a business will use funding (upon approval) to increase skills and accelerate promotions for incumbent workers while speeding job creation. Over the past 10 years, CareerEdge has co-invested nearly $10.6 million in grants to businesses, matched by employer investments and other funders. Employers may request grants of $15,000 to $50,000 to implement training programs up to 12 months in duration, with employee wages reported for two years upon training completion.
