On-Site Employee Training through the Massachusetts Workforce Training Grant Program and HR Knowledge

In 1998, legislation was approved in Massachusetts for the creation of the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund. This program is funded by the employers of Massachusetts.  An annual contribution of $8.40 for every Massachusetts employee is put into the fund and collected through his/her unemployment taxes. Over $300 million has been distributed by workforce training grants to fund various training initiatives throughout the Commonwealth since the initiation of the program. The money is put into a trust monthly and it is released through workforce training grant application approvals.HRK-Training
