Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program

Businesses of all sizes are eligible to apply for:

General Program Training Grants: Businesses can apply for a grant of up to $200,000. Employers, employer organizations, labor organizations, training providers, and consortia 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.

Training grants are available for:

  • *ESOL
  • Project Management
  • Machine Set-Up & Operation
  • Sales
  • Adult Basic Education
  • Lean/Continuous Process Improvement
  • Software & IT Skills
  • Customer Service
  • ISO
  • Leadership & Management Skills
  • Six Sigma
  • Train-the-Trainer
  • And much more!

*ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is a priority of the Workforce Training Fund.
