The Eagle Economic Development office has access to many resources and can connect businesses with the tools and support they need to succeed. We are a true partner in growth, so contact us with any questions related to workforce availability, recruitment and training. You can also contact one of our partners listed below.
Education & Training
In Eagle, we are dedicated to the support and enhancement of workforce development both at a local level and regionally. Part of this support is providing you with resources to obtain educational opportunities or to help your employees with skill building. The metro has several colleges and universities that provide workforce development and professional-technical education. The College of Western Idaho will work with companies to provide customized training on a curriculum that fits your needs.
Eligible employers can be reimbursed for a portion of their training costs for hiring and training an eligible worker - often someone new to the labor force or upgrading skills after a layoff - for a full-time, non-seasonal job at minimum wage. Learn more on the Idaho.gov website.
Work Opportunity Tax Credit
This credit can reduce your federal tax liability per eligible worker if your business qualifies. The program encourages employers to hire from targeted groups of disadvantaged job seekers. Learn more on the Idaho.gov website.
If your company is expanding, bringing new jobs to Idaho or re-training existing employees at risk of permanent layoff, Idaho Workforce Development Training Funds may be available to help pay training costs.Take a look at the video to the left to hear from some of the recipients of Idaho's Workforce.
