Grant Funding Opportunities
WAT Grants: Northwood Technical College is part of the Wisconsin Technical College System. The system has grant dollars (Workforce Advancement Training, or WAT Grants) available to give Wisconsin Technical Colleges the opportunity to partner with local businesses for their training needs. Grant funding varies from year to year, and will reimburse a portion of the cost of training for employees.
Grant funds are limited and the competition for WAT Grants is great. Because of this, we are limited to the number of grant proposals we can submit for any given grant period.
Fast Forward Grants: Wisconsin Fast Forward grants are available through Department of Workforce Development. Eligibility and guidelines vary.
If you would like to discuss WAT or Fast Forward grants, please contact us for more information and the most current grant application forms or information.
