FYI: The Skills Development Fund (SDF) is a grant program created by the Texas Legislature and administered by the Texas Workforce Commission to provide customized assessment and cutting-edge training to the Texas workforce. The primary intent of the program is to increase the skill levels and wages of our working population.  A secondary intent of SDF is to enhance the ability of community colleges to respond to workforce and industry training needs. SDF grants are administered by community colleges as a trusted source for the funds and to reduce the administrative burden on partner companies.
