Texas Industry Partnership Program

Texas Industry Partnership Program

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has dedicated $1 million to address skills gaps and ensure a talent pipeline is available to address regional industry needs.  Private employers or corporate foundations can collaborate with Workforce Solutions to apply for funding for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) activities that support workforce development for six designated industry clusters.

The Texas Industry Partnership (TIP) program supports collaborations between local workforce development boards and industry partners through the leveraging of matching contributions of cash or qualifying expenditures for occupational job training. Match funds must support certain WIOA activities and focus on six designated industry clusters:

  • Advanced Technologies and Manufacturing
  • Aerospace and Defense
  • Biotechnology and Life Sciences
  • Information technology
  • Petroleum Refining and Chemical Products
  • Energy

Allowable WIOA activities include:

  • training
  • mentoring
  • support services
  • skills assessments
  • cluster analysis
