The Workforce Training and Economic Development (WTED) Fund was established in 2003 as part of the Grow Iowa Values Fund and is currently funded through the Iowa Skilled Worker and Job Creation Fund. This fund has become an important source of financing for community college new program innovation, development, and capacity building, particularly for career and technical education. The funding is allocated annually using the community college state general aid distribution formula as provided for in Section 260C.18A of the Iowa Code. The funds in the Workforce Training and Economic Development Fund may be used to support the following community college activities: (1) Career academies; (2) Career and technical education (CTE) Programs; (3) Entrepreneurship education and small business assistance; and (4) General training, retraining, and in-service educational initiatives for targeted industries.
