About The Going PRO Talent Fund

Going PRO, administered by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity and coordinated through local Michigan Works! Agency branches, awards grants to employers to assist in training, developing and retaining current and newly hired employees.

Trainings eligible for funding through Going PRO must be short-term and fill a demonstrated talent need experienced by the employer. The training must also lead to a credential for a skill that is transferable and recognized by industry. This can include customized classroom training, on-the-job training for new employees, and Department of Labor (“DOL”) registered apprenticeships.
