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 in popular topics 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.

A business may access up to $15,000 in grant funds per calendar year through the Massachusetts Training Exchange. The Massachusetts Training Exchange is an online training marketplace. It was created by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to help Massachusetts businesses find high quality and cost-effective training for their workers and apply for Workforce Training Fund grant subsidies to help pay for the training.

The Massachusetts Training Exchange was first launched in a beta testing phase on July 1, 2019. To view guidelines, register your business, browse available courses, and enroll in training courses funded by the Small Business Direct Access Program, please visit MassTrainingExchange.org.
