Need assistance with MA Workforce Training Grants? We can help!

Massachusetts has several programs available, including the Workforce Training Fund, that help eligible employers cover the cost of training their workforce. The Corporate Education team at Massasoit can help you find the right program for your business.

The Workforce Training Fund – General Program. Through this program, employers can receive matching funds between $10,000 (minimum) and $250,000 (maximum) for customized training. Companies of any size may apply. Training programs must be completed within 24 months after award notification. Trainees must be employed in Massachusetts and be paid while in training.

The Workforce Training Fund – Express Program.   This program was designed for employers with less than 100 employees. The maximum grant award is $30,000 per calendar year. Training programs are pre-approved, “off the shelf” trainings. There is 50% reimbursement per course  with a maximum of $3,000 per course. Programs must be completed within 12 months after notification of award and employees must be paid while in training.

The Workforce Training Fund – Technical Assistance Grant. This program provides eligible employers with funding to conduct a training needs assessment and develop a training plan. The maximum award is $25,000, leading into a General Program grant and/or a Consortium grant.

The Workforce Training Fund – Consortium Grant. This program is available to multiple partners with similar training needs coming under one grant. Similar to a General Program grant, there is a minimum match of $10,000 and a maximum of $250,000.
