  Bluegrass State Skills Corporation - The Bluegrass State Skills Corporation (BSSC) was established in 1984 by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky as an independent, de jure corporation to stimulate economic development through customized business and industry specific skills training programs.  The BSSC works with business and industry and Kentucky's educational institutions to establish programs of skills training.  The BSSC is attached to the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development for administrative purposes, in recognition of the relationship between economic development and skills training efforts.

The BSSC is comprised of two economic development tools, matching grants and recently authorized Skills Training Investment Tax Credit.  The BSSC grant program is available to new, expanding and existing business and industry.  Eligible training activities include pre-employment skills training and assessment; entry-level skills upgrade and occupational upgrade training; train-the-trainer travel; and capacity building.  The Skills Training Investment Credit Act provides credits to existing businesses for skills upgrade training.
