About the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund

The Florida Job Growth Grant Fund is an economic development program designed to promote public infrastructure and workforce training across the state. Proposals are reviewed by EFI and DEO and chosen by the Governor to meet the demand for workforce or infrastructure needs in the community to which they are awarded.

In 2019-20, the agency will be able to provide $40 million for projects that focus on rapidly developing a highly-skilled workforce and on infrastructure initiatives that attract businesses, create jobs and promote economic growth.

Infrastructure

Public infrastructure projects can include transportation and utilities needed to support economic development.

Workforce

Workforce training projects will provide Floridians with transferable, sustainable workforce skills applicable to more than a single employer, and for equipment associated with these programs.
