    Incumbent Worker Training Assistance

    The Catawba Regional Council of Governments announces the availability of Incumbent Worker Training Assistance (IWT) under the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014. The purpose of the IWT program is to assist employers with training currently employed workers to keep businesses and workers competitive. Private sector South Carolina Employers/Business Consortiums located in the counties of Chester, Lancaster, and York counties and in need of training for incumbent workers due to expansion and changing skill requirements caused by new technology, retooling, new product lines, and new organizational restructuring may be eligible for IWT assistance.
