Small Business Direct Access Program

small business Direct Access Program

The Small Business Direct Access Program addresses smaller-scale training needs by making training slots available free of charge to eligible businesses.

Businesses with 100 or fewer Massachusetts employees that contribute to the Workforce Training Fund are eligible to access training through the Small Business Direct Access Program.

Businesses should consider the program when:

  • The scope and scale of training needs are smaller than what would be proposed in a General Program application
  • Training needs cannot be easily met by a consortium or Express Program grant
