Important Announcement

The Workforce Training Fund Program (WTFP) has adjusted its grant-making policies to ensure the WTFP's longevity while considering an unprecedented surge in grant applications. The following policies will be applied to all Express Program applications submitted on or after July 10, 2023.

1.   The maximum amount of Express Program reimbursement that a business may receive for approved training courses will decrease from $30,000 to $20,000 per calendar year  

2.   Employers with over 100 Massachusetts employees will no longer be eligible to receive Express Program grants and will be encouraged to submit General Program applications.  

3.   Employers can only take part in either the Express or General Program at any given moment.

We value your partnership and appreciate your understanding as we work to navigate these changes together


The Express Program provides employers fast, simple access to grant-funded training, helping businesses in Massachusetts respond to emerging needs.
