Training Grants

Training Grants Available to Massachusetts Businesses

General Program Training Grants

Businesses can apply for a grant up to $250,000. Employers, employer organizations, labor organizations, training providers, and a consortium of such entities are encouraged to apply for funds to train current and newly hired workers. You may use a training provider of your choice. While we fund the majority of training content, courses that a company is legally mandated to provide (such as OSHA training) are not eligible for funding under this program. Training programs must be completed within two years.

Express Program

Businesses that contribute to the Workforce Training Fund are eligible to apply for an Express Grant. Grant funds are limited to $30,000 per company per calendar year and $3,000 per employee per course. If approved, the WTFP will reimburse you for up to 50% of the actual cost of training.

NEW companies over 100 employees can NOW apply for Express Grants

The Small Business Direct Access Program

The Small Business Direct Access Program Workforce Training Grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will be ending June 30th, 2021. A new express grant will be put in it’s place.

Certificates of Good Standing are required for companies to participate in these programs.
You can file for a Certificate of Good Standing at Mass Tax Connect.
