Effective July 1, 2021: While any eligible business may receive an Express Grant, only businesses with under 100 employees in Massachusetts are eligible to have the full cost of training covered, up to $3,000 / person / course. For applications received on, or after, July 1, 2021:
Eligible Massachusetts businesses of any size may apply for training grants through the Commonwealth Corporation's Workforce Training Fund’s Express Program for their Massachusetts employees. Additional limitations apply. The Express Program assists companies by helping to address their employee training needs through a list of pre-registered courses. Companies must pay into the Workforce Training Fund to be eligible to apply for grant funds. Eligible employers complete a short, on-line application to request grant funds for pre-registered training courses. NOTE: Employers must apply 21 days before the first session begins and follow other Workforce Training Fund requirements.
Grant funds are limited to $3,000 per employee per course and $30,000 per company per calendar year. Courses (such as OSHA) that a company is legally mandated to provide to its employees are not eligible for reimbursement under this grant program. You may only request reimbursement for training individuals who are on your company’s payroll and work in Massachusetts.
