The formal programs offered by the Commerce Department include:

  • On-the-Job Training (OJT) grant funds to reimburse eligible employers up to 50% of the participants’ wages in the amount of $3,500 per participant, not to exceed a total of $25,000, and Customized Job Training (CJT) grant funds to reimburse eligible employers up to 75% of eligible training costs to meet specifications of the occupation prior to employment. 
  • Loans and Economic Development Assistance from the Montgomery County Redevelopment Authority (RDA), Industrial Development Authority (IDA) and Montgomery County Development Corporation (MCDC) that can be used for capital improvements and investments.
  • We also provide assistance with real estate acquisition and development, building industry partnerships, establishing trade relations with foreign markets, and identifying new business opportunities for companies wishing to serve Montgomery County or its citizens.

To get the process started, we ask you to send us a formal letter requesting assistance. The letter should include details about the company, its employee population, the nature and duration of its presence in Montgomery County, and specifics on the opportunity you would like the County to consider. You can also fill out an electronic form, and we will respond within 48 hours with an email or direct call in response to your inquiry.



We look forward to being of service to you.
