Montana's new Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) program can provide funding for job training for employees of small businesses. The employer must apply for an IWT grant through one of three organizations that will assess eligibility and need. Those organizations are the Montana Manufacturing Extension Center at MSU Bozeman, the Small Business Development Centers sponsored by the Montana Department of Commerce, and the Business Expansion and Retention teams sponsored by the Montana Economic Developers Association. Local contacts for these organizations can be obtained at your local Job Service Workforce Center. The Centers are listed at http://wsd.dli.mt.gov/service/officelist.asp
