New Hampshire Training: What you need to know

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) supersedes the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) and the Wagner-Peyser Act. The WIA reformed federal job training programs and created a new, comprehensive Workforce Investment system. The program gives each state three block grants targeting adult employment and job training, disadvantaged youth employment and training, and adult education and literacy programs. The federal government retains oversight, reviews state programs, and rejects those state programs that do not meet the Act's standards.

Job Training Program for Economic Growth. The New Hampshire Job Training Program for Economic Growth awards 50 percent matching grants to state businesses that provide training to employees or applicants. The program is intended to attract new business, assist in the expansion of business, and retain existing businesses in New Hampshire. Through this program, the state will offer assistance to privately owned businesses and industries in training a new workforce and retraining existing employees to implement new technologies, create new jobs, and retain and upgrade existing jobs; provide technical education and training as a component of the state's economic development efforts; and be responsive to the training needs of New Hampshire business and industry (NH Rev. Stat. Sec. 12-A:51et seq.).
Grants are awarded to businesses in or intending to be in the state and must be matched dollar for dollar by the hiring employer. Training is provided only to employees who live in New Hampshire or who work for a business located or planning to locate in New Hampshire. Small businesses implementing technological innovations are given priority. New Hampshire businesses and industries can apply for state-subsidized training services through the Department of Resources and Economic Development, Division of Economic Development.
