  • Going PRO Talent Fund

    Have you heard? The Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) is getting a name change.  Through Public Act 260, signed by Governor Snyder on June 27, 2018, STTF was codified to become the Going PRO Talent Fund (the Talent Fund).  Even with a new identity, the Going PRO Talent Fund remains one of the most powerful tools in Michigan’s toolkit to address in-demand skill growth and employer talent needs.  Talent Fund awards made through the local Michigan Works! agencies assist Michigan businesses to train, develop and retain current and newly hired employees.
