ILLINOIS STATE LIBRARY
Workplace Skills Enhancement Grant Program
The Workplace Skills Enhancement Grant program consists of local projects throughout Illinois that provide instruction to improve the basic reading, math, writing skills or English language proficiency of current or prospective employees. These instructional services are provided at the workplace.
Eligible employees read at or below the ninth grade level or speak English at a beginning level to improve their reading, writing, math or their use of English as a new language.
These grant funds are available to a partnership of an adult educational agency and a public or private employer. The educational agency must not be a for-profit entity. The business partner must match the public funding on a one to one basis.
