WORKFORCE TRAINING FUND GRANTS
Our competitive edge, a uniquely tailored service that secures workforce training fund government grants to cover the cost of your training.
Our team consists of highly skilled and experienced training consultants with backgrounds in organizational psychology, management consulting, business strategy, analytics, finance, accounting, government grant writing and applications and marketing. We have experienced and skilled grant writers who understand how to determine if you qualify for a workforce training fund grant and write the application for you. Normally training grant writers and trainers are two separate entities, with us we are one. We have significant experience and have a 100% track record to date in securing training grants for our clients. This is a free service, on condition that our consultants and trainers perform the training once the training grant is awarded.
We only put in training grant applications that we believe stand a very strong chance of being awarded and that will have a long term benefit to the company. We use our analytics capability to determine the ROI for the company which is a key requirement for workforce training fund grant programs.
We do not use a traditional approach. Our training techniques focus on identifying the core issues for improvement and finding solutions that are designed to meet your specific employee development needs, always placing an emphasis on sustainability. We can conduct a thorough training needs analysis to help you identify where training is needed most.
In addition we have a vast network of partners and other training providers who cater to very specific training needs sometimes required by clients, if we do not offer such a specific service ourselves.

The Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund is a state fund enacted into law in 1998 and financed entirely by Massachusetts employers. Its purpose is to provide resources to Massachusetts businesses and workers to train current and newly hired employees.
The Massachusetts General Grant Program is for any size company training employees in job-related skills through a training program that demonstrates the effect of job retention/ progression, skill improvement, productivity growth and increase in revenue. MA General Program Grant Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year. In most cases, applicants are notified of training grant application outcomes within 60 days from grant submission of a complete application. Currently training grant funds awarded can reach $250,000 and must be used within a 24-month period.
Hiring Incentive Training Grant Program (HITGP)
HITGP assists Massachusetts companies in paying for training for new employees that meet certain criteria: Massachusetts residents who have been unemployed for 6 months or more; the period of unemployment is waived for Veterans (DD214 is required). The training grant allocates up to $2,000 per employee or up to $30,000 a year per company. New Applications for this program were frozen on November 30, 2014 and therefore no new applications for this program are being accepted. We will advise if this changes.
