Skills Development Fund


The Skills Development Fund was established by the 74th Legislature in 1995. The fund utilizes training organizations such as community and technical colleges and technical schools to meet labor market needs. Small businesses and other employers can partner with these institutions for customized job training to meet the specific needs of the company.   


The Skills Development Fund is Texas' premier job-training program providing local customized training opportunities for Texas businesses and workers to increase skill levels and wages of the Texas workforce. The Texas Workforce Commission administers funding for the program. Success is achieved through collaboration among businesses, public community and technical colleges, Workforce Development Boards and economic development partners.
