Businesses… The Workforce Training Fund Program may answer your training and budget questions!

By Stephanie Caporale | On July 18, 2016 | Comments(0)

The Workforce Training Fund Program (WTFP) can help Massachusetts businesses with this!  In order to qualify, businesses must pay into the Fund.  All for-profit companies automatically pay into the fund. If you are a non-profit, let’s see if you qualify by contacting BerkshireWorks. Government agencies are not eligible to apply.

While available to businesses of all sizes, the WTFP focuses on small to medium-sized businesses that would not be able invest in improving employee skills without the assistance of the Fund.

There are three programs to which businesses may apply: General Program, Express Program, and Direct Access Program.

If you are a local MA business and you would like more information on WTFP, please contact a Business Services Representative at BerkshireWorks today, and we will gladly assist you!
