GENERAL PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Incumbent worker programs shall be targeted to specific employers or industries that are experiencing a decline and have the
potential to undergo layoffs, or are experiencing a serious skills gap that impacts the ability to compete and retain workers. These
employers have determined that their workers require training in order to:
 ● Keep the employer competitive and the workers employed
 ● Avert layoffs
 ● Upgrade workers' skills
 ● Increase wages earned by employees
 ● Keep workers' skills competitive
Such training would support career advancement and would encompass skills that are transferable as a means of promoting high-skill,
high-wage positions and economic development within a region.
Labor Market Information (LMI) and any available skills gap analysis must be utilized to determine the recipients of incumbent
worker training funding. Incumbent worker training must provide participants with a significant upgrade in skills such as:
 ● Job specific retraining or skills upgrading related to new work processes or business restructuring
 ● Introduction of new industry technology
 ● New organization strategies designed to prevent dislocation of Michigan businesses and/or workers
PROGRAM GOALS
The Barry/Branch/Calhoun Workforce Developmental Board established the following goals for the Workforce Investment Act
(W.I.A.) Incumbent Worker Training Program:
 ● Avert layoffs within area companies
 ● Create access to job openings as a result of the Incumbent Worker Training Program for participants in
   other Michigan Works! Programs
  ● Address the Workforce Development Board's goal of strengthening the skills of current workers
Training can be used to teach skills for new product or service offerings, cross training employees, process improvement, or any
training activities designed to prevent layoffs or create vacancies.
Funds may not be used for the following purposes:
 ● For training that an employer is in a position to provide and would have provided in the absence of this funding
 ● To pay salaries of program participants
 ● For the acquisition of production equipment
 ● Out-of-state travel
 ● Equipment or furniture costs
Program Key Points
 ● No match for "off the shelf" training
 ● 50% match for training developed for delivery specific to a company
 ● Must contact local MIWorks! Agency to fill vacant positions resulting from training funded through the program
 ● Training must be completed by June 30, 2010

Evaluation Process
 ● All applications will be reviewed by a committee including one KCC representative and one representative from your community
 ● A rubric is used to critique and score each application and to determine eligible participants
 ● Applications containing training completion dates prior to February 1, 2010 will be given preference.
