The Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund is a state fund financed by MA employers through their unemployment contributions.  Since 1999, the fund has been providing companies with monetary resources to train current and newly hired employees.  If you need help funding your training initiatives and would like to learn more about how to obtain these funds, attend one of EANE's FREE informational briefings.

The briefing will provide an introduction to the Workforce Training Fund, including:

General Fund - Grants for customized training up to $250,000
