一般计划培训补助金： Businesses can apply for a grant of up to $200,000. Employers, employer organizations, labor organizations, training providers, and consortia of such entities are encouraged to apply for funds to train current and newly hired workers. You may use a training provider of your choice. While we fund the majority of training content, courses that a company is legally mandated to provide (such as OSHA training) are not eligible for funding under this program. Training programs must be completed within two years.
*ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is a priority of the Workforce Training Fund. Effective immediately, new General Program applications that include workplace ESOL are not required to meet the dollar-for-dollar matching requirement if the application otherwise meets the match in absence of the ESOL module(s). For example, if the total grant request is $150,000, with $50,000 designated for ESOL, the matching funds for the non-ESOL modules must total at least $100,000.
The Workforce Training Fund Program (WTFP) has adjusted its grantmaking policies to ensure the longevity of the WTFP while taking into account an unprecedented surge in grant applications. The following four policies will be applied to all Express and General Program applications submitted on or after July 10, 2023:
Applications received prior to July 10, 2023, will be considered for previous grant limits ($250,000 for General Program / $30,000 for Express Program).
The WTFP values the thousands of businesses we serve, and the providers that serve businesses with relevant on-the-job training for their incumbent workers. We are confident that these revised policies will ensure the WTFP’s sustainability in the years ahead.
