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 your Program Manager with any questions or concerns. If you do not have your Program Manager’s email address, contact WTFP@commcorp.org or Krayne@commcorp.org and we will direct you to the appropriate contact.

Businesses of all sizes are eligible to apply for:

General Program Training Grants: Businesses can apply for a grant up to $250,000. Employers, employer organizations, labor organizations, training providers, and a consortia of such entities are encouraged to apply for funds to train current and newly hired workers. You may use a training provider of your choice. While we fund the majority of training content, courses that a company is legally mandated to provide (such as OSHA training) are not eligible for funding under this program. Training programs must be completed within two years.

Training grants are available for:

  • *ESOL
  • Project Management
  • Machine Set-Up & Operation
  • Sales
  • Adult Basic Education
  • Lean/Continuous Process Improvement
  • Software & IT Skills

*ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is a priority of the Workforce Training Fund. Effective immediately, new General Program applications that include workplace ESOL are not required to meet the dollar-for-dollar matching requirement, if the application otherwise meets the match in absence of the ESOL module(s). ​For example, if the total grant request is $200,000, with $50,000 designated for ESOL, the matching funds for the non-ESOL modules must total at least $150,000.

If your training plan includes ESOL you must contact us at krayne@commcorp.org before you apply for guidance about how to take full advantage of special exceptions for ESOL.
