Three Kentucky hospitals are among the recipients of $2 million in new statewide workforce training incentives, Gov. Andy Beshear announced Thursday. 

Under the Bluegrass State Skills Corporation in the state’s Cabinet for Economic Development, the Grant-in-Aid program gives businesses cash incentives to provide employees with advanced training. 

Businesses can also get tax credits through the Skills Training Investment Credit. Types of businesses can include agribusiness, hospitals, manufacturing and more

This round of incentives will provide training to: 

  • 1,000 trainees at Bowling Green Metalforming LLC
  • 820 trainees for Louisville Seating in Shepherdsville
  • 620 trainees at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in Somerset
  • 450 trainees at Clark Regional Medical Center in Winchester
  • 130 trainees at Bourbon Community Hospital in Paris
  • 250 trainees at James Marine Inc. in Paducah
  • 200 trainees at Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. in Russell Springs
  • 200 trainees at Waystar Inc. in Louisville

“Staying competitive and building on our historic economic momentum takes investment…and workforce training,” Beshear said. “And that’s exactly what this program does.”
