SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: After extensive development and testing, Commonwealth Corporation is pleased to implement a new application process for the Workforce Training Fund General Program Training Grant, effective September 1, 2016. The new on-line application is cloud-based and integrated with program databases allowing for a smarter, more flexible application. The new system reflects Commonwealth Corporation’s commitment to continually improving our programs in order to increase access to training resources and maximize operational efficiency, while maintaining a customer-centric focus.

Resulting benefits include:

  • Access from any internet-connected location
  • Quicker response time
  • Greater efficiency for applicants, grant recipients, and program administrators
  • Better access to data and documentation to simplify the administration of grants
  • A deeper pool of data to enhance program analysis
  • More agile process development that allows for incremental improvements

Effective November 1, 2016, applications submitted using the previous format will no longer be accepted.  Please contact us at or at (617) 717-6919 with questions or feedback.

Thank you,

Commonwealth Corporation
