Quick Response Training (QRT) Grants and Florida SouthWestern State College

Florida SouthWestern State College is the State Fiscal Agent for QRT grants in SouthWest Florida. By working closely with CareerSource Florida in Tallahassee, the School of Business and Technology (SoBT) has been successful in securing $3.9 million of QRT funds to train over 2,300 new hires over the last four years in both Lee and in Collier counties.

This funding not only directly benefits the companies receiving training funds, but also results in a local economic benefit through the multiplier effect.

The QRT grant lasts for two years and is targeted on the highly customized training programs that companies need to improve the skill base of new hires. These programs can be instructed by specialists from the company itself or by a one of the SoBT's extensive portfolio of private and internal subject matter experts.
