At Commonwealth Corporation, we recognize the major implications the COVID-19 virus is having on the organizations we support. We are encouraging Workforce Training Fund grantees to coordinate with their training provider(s) to offer the planned content remotely or through virtual classrooms, if possible. Please email Express@commcorp.org with any questions or concerns.
Notice: Express Program Application Changes Effective January 10, 2020. Please click here for details.
Businesses with 100 or fewer employees that contribute to the Workforce Training Fund are eligible to apply for an Express Grant. All for-profit companies automatically pay into the fund. If you are a non-profit, click here
to learn if you qualify. Government agencies are not eligible to apply.
Grant funds are limited to $30,000 per company per calendar year and $3,000 per employee per course. If approved, the WTFP will reimburse you for up to 50% of the actual cost of training. Note: Courses that a company is legally mandated to provide to its employees are not eligible for reimbursement under this program (e.g. OSHA). You may only request reimbursement for training for employees who are on your company’s payroll and work in Massachusetts.
Here is an Express Course Directory
to assist with your application. You must select a pre-registered course from this directory when you apply. Training providers may request to add a course to the directory. Please see the course registration process
for more information about registering a new course.
Commonwealth Corporation makes no endorsement regarding the quality of the training providers/ courses listed in the directory. You are encouraged to conduct your own research and are responsible for confirming course availability and pricing prior to submitting an application.
