Rep. Hicks-Hudson Announces Job Training Bill Signed Into Law
Says TechCred bill to invest in Ohio workers
 
 

State Representative Paula Hicks-Hudson (D-Toledo) today announced Gov. Mike DeWine’s signing of House Bill (HB) 2, bipartisan legislation that expands job training and workforce development opportunities in Ohio.


“The signing of this bill better connects working people to good paying jobs that can sustain a family,” said Hicks-Hudson. “This is another example of our efforts to restore the Ohio Promise—to work together to give working people and families the tools they need to live the American Dream right here at home.”


HB 2 creates the TechCred and Individual Microcredential Assistance Program (IMAP). Depending on the microcredential, employers can receive up to $2,000 reimbursements for training costs for both incumbent and prospective employees for the TechCred program.  Training providers may seek up to $3,000 reimbursement for educating individuals in IMAP, with a focus on helping low-income, underemployed or unemployed individuals.
