How to Fund Corporate Training

Grant writing is available, at no cost, for submission to the Workforce Training Fund Program. 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 mission of the Fund is to provide businesses with the resources to invest in the Massachusetts workforce and improve employee skills, and to maintain the economic strength and viability of the Commonwealth’s businesses.

Workforce Training Fund Options

  • General Program Grant: Companies looking for extensive training up to $200,000 with up to two years to deliver training.
  • Express Program Grant: Employers looking for less complex training with quicker turn-around.

Corporate Training

We have delivered employee training at over 150 companies across the state. When you work with MWCC for your employee training needs, you’ll work in partnership with professional training consultants to develop a program that meets the unique needs of your business and your workforce.

Our goal is to assist businesses in North Central Mass to access grant training dollars and to provide quality training to the workforce. At no cost to businesses, our professional grant writer will work to craft and submit the most effective grant application possible.

Our instructors combine a high level of expertise in their respective fields with practical experience in business and industry. Employee training can occur at your company, at one of our conveniently located campuses, off-site, online or a hybrid of delivery methods.
