I agree, under penalty
of perjury, that training funded by program resources will not be provided by a
member of immediate family of any company owner, investor, or employee.
Immediate family includes: spouse, parents and grandparents, children and
grandchildren, siblings, mother in law and father in law, brothers in law and
sisters in law, daughters in law and sons in law, and step members.
submitting this form, the company acknowledges and agrees to the following
All trainees must be W2
payroll employees of participating companies that are employed in
Massachusetts. (They are not required to live in Massachusetts.) Contractors or
employees of other firms (e.g. temps) are not eligible to participate.
All trainees must be
paid at their regular pay rates during all training hours.
Only organizations that
contribute to the Workforce Training Fund are eligible to take part in WTFP
grant programs. (Please Note: All private, for-profit employers that are
required to contribute to the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund in
Massachusetts contribute to the Workforce Training Fund as do some non-profits.
Non-profits that select the contributory method to finance
Unemployment Insurance are eligible. Non-profits that select the reimbursable method are paying a
discounted rate that does not include contribution to the WTFP and therefore
are not eligible. No federal, state, or local government entities contribute
and therefore are not eligible to take part in any grant-funded training.)
organizations must also be in full compliance with all obligations to the
Department of Unemployment Assistance, Department of Industrial Accidents, and
any other obligations to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Training must be
completed by June 30, 2021. Program funds may be only used to pay for approved
training expenses that take place during the designated period. Expenses
incurred before or after the designated contract period may not be paid for
using grant funds.
organizations are subject to audit. Companies receiving grants must provide
access to related records upon request by Workforce Training Fund
administrators or designees. Records requested may include, but are not limited
to, participant-level information / interviews, on-site observation of
training, payroll records, and other relevant financial records.
