The Workforce Training Fund is a state fund financed entirely by Massachusetts employers, and enacted into law in July 1998. Its purpose is to provide resources to Massachusetts businesses and workers to train current and newly hired employees. The fund’s major focus is on small to mediumsized businesses that would not be able to make this investment without the assistance of the fund.
There is no limit on the number of times an organization can apply for Workforce Training funds, either within a round or within a fiscal year. The only specified limit on training funds is $250,000 per training grant. However, applicants should be aware that an effort will be made to distribute funds across geographic areas, industry sectors, and occupations.
