STATE FUNDING

The Talent Authority has the resources to assist you in identifying state and federal funds that may be available to offset the cost of your development initiative.  

 

CALIFORNIA STATE FUNDING

 

Eligible employers can access state funds through The Talent Authority to off-set the costs of training that we deliver for you.  Subsidies vary based on eligibility.  As a very first step, we recommend completing a no-obligation eligibility questionnaire.  Once approved, the state off-set is dependent on the number of trainees.  Most companies see a training subsidy that pay for 65-85% of the delivery fees.

Training Delivered Onsite at Your Facility

We discuss your training objectives, scope your project, and provide you the total delivery fee.  We then estimate the state subsidy given the number of participants and deduct that estimate from the fee.  The balance is what your company pays!  We handle the state cash flow.   You will only pay for trainees (1) that do not complete training hours, (2) who are not retained in full-time employment in California 90 days after training, (3) that are not paid at least $20.00 per hour, which may include up to $2.50 in employer paid health benefits.  (Note that hourly wage varies by California county and you'll be notified of your specific wage requirement for trainees.)

Training Delivered via Zoom

Enroll your leaders into the Talent Academy for Leaders, which is an 8 session program delivered virtually via Zoom.  Just pay the $275 enrollment fee and we take care of the rest.  Trainees will need to (1) complete the 8 session program, (2) stay employed with your company for 90 days after training, and (3) earn between $20.00 and $85.00 per hour, which may include up to $2.50 in employer-paid health benefits.  Contact training@TheTalentAuthority.com for upcoming dates.
