STATE TRAINING GRANTS
Kansas City Kansas Community College is authorized by the Kansas Department of Commerce to assist eligible companies in preparing applications for workforce training programs that are designed to pay for the costs of training new employees or retraining existing workers. The sources of funds include:
Kansas Industrial Training (KIT) - This is a flexible workforce-training program designed to respond to the specific needs of new and expanding companies. Eligible industries include basic enterprises that are creating at least one new job, excluding the jobs of recalled workers, replacement workers, or jobs that formerly existed.
Kansas Industrial Retraining (KIR) - This is a job retention tool that assists employees of restructuring companies who are likely to be displaced because of obsolete or inadequate job skills and knowledge. Eligible industries include basic enterprises that are restructuring their operations through incorporation of new technology, diversification of production, or the development and implementation of new production activities.
Investments in Major Projects & Comprehensive Training (IMPACT) - This is designed for new and expanding businesses that are creating new jobs. IMPACT is typically reserved for projects involving at least 100 new jobs at a higher-than-average wage. The IMPACT program may also be used for job retention projects that have compelling economic benefit for Kansas.
