Quick Response Training Challenge Grants Announced


Announcing “Quick Response Training Challenge Grants”

Workforce Florida, Inc. has launched a Quick Response Training Challenge Grant available to companies in Florida’s logistics and trade industry.  With two million in funding, these special time-limited grants will provide partial reimbursement for trade and logistics companies that need workforce training for current or new employees. The Challenge Grant will be offered to companies involved in moving freight, both by land, sea, air, or rail, and to logistics companies

Funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so companies should let Workforce Florida know of their interest early on.  Once approved, companies will have 12 months to complete training.

For on-going updates, please visit FDOT’s new web portal,, a partnership between the Florida Department of Transportation, WorkForce Florida, the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Florida to support the state’s growing trade and logistics industry.
