SWFI Application

Thank you for your interest in the Strengthening Working Families Initiative (SWFI) Training Programs.  No matter what your background, we can offer you the training and essential skills to help you get a job in manufacturing.  These jobs pay more, offer better benefits, and give you a chance to grow.  We support you and your family to make it possible to get an education.

SWFI is part of a national study to measure if offering students extra supports, together with skills training, helps them to complete training and find employment. Support services and space in specific training are limited. Eligible applicants will be chosen by a computerized selection process.

If you have questions about this grant eligibility criteria, please contact SWFI@vtc.edu or (802) 879-2348.
