Some states offer grant money to help your company offset the cost of training.
PASS works hard to bring you the most cost-effective, non-intrusive yet meaningful training on the market. We are always looking for ways to offset the expense of training for our clients. One of the ways we do this is by negotiating grants for our trainings. Click on a tab above to better understand what grants are available in which states.
Iowa Grant Information
Grants are available through the Iowa DNR to completely pay for the cost of the PASS Class A/B Operator Training for persons who must be certified to operate federally regulated underground storage tanks.
Iowa has placed a $250,000 statutory annual fiscal limit on available training funds. These funds are awarded on a first come, first served basis and if they are depleted prior to your UST Training completion, you [your company] will be billed in full for your training. However, training completed prior to the depletion of the grant funds will be paid in full by the state fund. As such, we at PASS strongly urge you to complete your training within 30 days of submitting your grant information to PASS.

Wisconsin Grant Information
Wisconsin Grant Application Period has been extended 9/30/2013
ALL GRANTS MUST BE APPLIED FOR AND TRAINING COMPLETED BY 9/30/2013
Grants are available through the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services to help offset the cost of the PASS Class A/B Training by $75 for persons who must be certified to operate federally regulated underground storage tanks.
Only one grant will be awarded per person to Wisconsin tank operators on a first come basis, subject to available funds. Commerce will give priority to small business owners, civic organizations or government agencies. Operators for large businesses will also be considered for grants, depending on funding availability. (Note: Section 227.114 (1) Wis Stats, reads in part: “‘Small business’ means a business entity, including its affiliates, which is independently owned and operated and not dominant in its field, and which employs 25 or fewer full-time employees or which has gross annual sales of less than $5,000,000.”)
* If you already applied and received numbers from the state of Wisconsin, you still need to sign up at PASS and create a facility in the control panel before we can apply your grant discount.
