Job Skills Program:

Washington State provides Job Skills (JSP) funds to qualifying companies to substantially offset the cost of employee training. The funds are available on a competitive application process for training conducted with Everett Community College (EvCC) or other approved institutions.

Your business is eligible to apply for the Job Skills Program if:

  • You are a Washington employer
  • Your business is in need of assistance for employee training for the purpose of remaining competitive in the marketplace
  • Your employees need skill training to ensure or improve their employability
  • You can provide dollar-for-dollar match of all grant funds (in salaries, benefits, in-kind contributions, and cash.)

Customized Training Program

The Washington Customized Training Program (CTP) was created by the State Legislature to provide training assistance to businesses that provide employment opportunities in Washington.  The Customized Training Program allows for companies to receive customized training while deferring the costs, and receiving a 50% B&O tax credit. After training is completed the business repays the costs of training received to the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges interest free.The first payment will be equal to 25% of the full cost of the training program and is due upon completion of the training. The remaining 75% is spread over the next 18 months.

As each payment is made the business may take a state B&O tax credit equal to 50% of the payment. After all payments have been made, the company's total tax credit will be equal to 50% of the full cost of the training program.
