Participant Rights and Responsibilities 

 

Next Level Jobs—part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda—aims to equip working-age Hoosiers and Indiana employers with the training and skills they need to succeed in the 21st Century economy. Through the Workforce Ready Grant, working-age Hoosiers can enroll in no- to low-cost training programs in any one of Indiana’s 5 high-demand sectors: Advanced Manufacturing, Building & Construction, Health & Life Sciences, IT & Business Services, and Transportation & Logistics.
