Governor's Guaranteed Work Force Program

NOTE: The Small Business Work Force Training Award is now called the Governor's Guaranteed Work Force Training Award.

The Governor's Guaranteed Work Force (GGWF) training award program gives small businesses a competitive edge by providing access to quality workforce training and raises the skill level of West Virginia's small business workforce.

GGWF reimburses pre-approved technology, technical, and regulatory compliance training for small businesses. Most small businesses are eligible for up to $5,000.

Small businesses choose the trainer, the location, and the date for training. The WVSBDC requires businesses to work with the local SBDC to make a year long training plan to maximize the use of the training award. GGWF then reimburses businesses for these pre-approved training expenses.

GGWF can fund up to 75% of actual training costs up to a maximum $5000.
