North Dakota New Jobs Training Program

This North Dakota program offers incentives to primary sector businesses that are creating new Full Time employment opportunities through business expansion, creation and/or relocation to the state. Funding is provided to help offset the cost of training new employees.

Under the North Dakota New Jobs Training Program, your business may be able to obtains funds in the form of a loan, a reimbursement grant, or under a self-financing option. State income tax withholding from the new positions created are matched for up to ten years, until the maximum reimbursement is reached, or until the loan is repaid, whichever comes first.

A North Dakota New Jobs Training Preliminary Agreement establishes the effective date for a project and must be signed and in place prior to the start date of any new employee. To qualify, the business must agree that all the new jobs created will be paying a minimum of $10 per hour plus benefits within the first 12 months of employment.
