Whether you work in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island or beyond, EANE professionals will help you make a compelling case to secure funding for the training you need. In fact, workforce training grants are often the backbone of a training budget and the answer to learning and development needs. Companies may receive up $250,000 in grant-funded training.
The Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund provides resources to increase job retention, growth and wages; to foster more productive and competitive companies; and, ultimately, to improve the ability to do business in Massachusetts and to increase commitments to private investment in training.
The Connecticut Employment & Training Administration provides thousands of dollars in grants and contracts each year through its Workforce Investment Act. The Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training’s Business Workforce Center provides workforce assistance.
The focus of the grants are often skills that are transferable and measurable, ranging from those that impact productivity, system and process improvements to areas of staff retention and career advancement, to leadership, team building and communication.
