DEED Training Grant Programs

The Minnesota Jobs Skills Partnership (MJSP) works with businesses, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to train or retrain workers, expand work opportunities and keep high-quality jobs in the state. The goal is to target short-term training for full-time employment in the growth sectors of the state’s economy.

We offer grants through a variety of programs to offset training-related expenses incurred by business, industry, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions to meet current and future workforce needs.


Our main training grant option, the Partnership program, focuses on providing training for both new and existing employees of participating businesses throughout the state.

Partnership Program

Minnesota participating businesses must partner with an accredited Minnesota educational institution. Grants of up to $400,000 are awarded to the educational institution to develop and deliver custom training specific to business needs. A cash or in-kind contribution from the participating business must match the grant funds on at least a one-to-one basis.

Courses may be customized to meet your organization’s specific needs. Training may be scheduled during the work day, in the evening, weekends or online.
