Workforce Economic Development Network (WEDnet) training grant program.

Lock Haven University has been a WEDnetPA Partner since the program began in 1999.  To date, LHU has provided more than $5.3M in training funds to eligible companies.  These funds have resulted in nearly 50,000 training and skill building opportunities provided to the Commonwealth’s workforce

WEDnetPA (Workforce & Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania) invests in Pennsylvania companies by providing the funds needed to upgrade the skills, education and training of their current employees.  WEDnet is a valuable resource to companies struggling to find new workers.  We can help advance existing, hard-working employees into qualified candidates capable of performing at a higher level. 

  • By expanding skill sets.
  • Teaching new technology.
  • Creating a more productive environment.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has created the opportunity for employers to train new and existing employees through the WEDnetPA program. Training is available to qualified in-state businesses and out-of-state companies relocating to the economic-friendly business climate of Pennsylvania — with funding accessed through WEDnetPA and made available by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
