State Programs

The state of Kentucky is focused on the development and training of skilled workers. The Kentucky Skills Network is working through the Cabinet for Economic Development’s Grant-in-Aid and Skills Training Investment Credit to support workers and employers in developing new skills and remaining competitive.

The competitive Grant-in-Aid (GIA) provides funding reimbursements for worker training at Kentucky’s new and expanding companies and for skills and occupational upgrade training for workers of Kentucky’s existing companies. Qualified companies include manufacturers, agribusiness, non-retail service or technology companies, national or regional headquarters, healthcare companies and training consortia.

The Skills Training Investment Credit (STIC) offers state income tax credits for companies to offset the costs for approved training programs provided to incumbent employees of companies engaged in the manufacturing, agribusiness, non-retail service or technology, national or regional headquarters, and healthcare company sectors.

Applications are accepted and reviewed year-round by the Bluegrass State Skills Corporation Board of Directors
