  • Going PRO Talent Fund

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated budget shortfalls, the Going PRO Talent Fund was vetoed through Public Act 66 of 2020, signed by Governor Whitmer on March 30, 2020. This act resulted in a number of supplemental budget line items being vetoed. As a result, no Going PRO Talent Fund awards are available for FY20.

    Visit the Going PRO Talent Fund page for more information, and contact your local Michigan Works! office about submitting an application. Training funded by the Talent Fund must be short-term and fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer. Training must lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry.
