Workforce Enhancement Grants


Bismarck State College received a $50,000 workforce enhancement grant to help the Agriculture Industry and Technology program and the Farm and Ranch Management program.

The Workforce Enhancement Grant Program provides funding for a demand driven response to workforce training needs through:
  • development of curriculum.
  • purchase of equipment and technology.
  • recruitment of participants.
  • training and certification for instructors (may not be used to supplant funding for current operations).
Eligible institutions include Bismarck State College, Lake Region State College, North Dakota State College of Science and Williston State College.

Funding for Workforce Enhancement Grants is determined by the legislature on a biennial basis.
