Training Funds to Boost Your Organization’s Success

For most businesses, there is no asset more important than their people. NECC can help you make the most of your team by identifying funds to train new employees or grow the skill sets of your current staff. We have helped secure hundreds of training grants from state resources including:

Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund

Created to help businesses of all sizes address employee productivity and market competitiveness through improved training of new and existing personnel. NECC can help you apply for training grants of up to $250,000.

Express Program

Available to businesses with fewer than 100 employees, Express Program grants are limited to $30,000 per company, per year, and up to $3,000 per employee per course. Businesses are eligible for reimbursement of up to 50% of training costs.

Small Business Direct Access Training Program (SBDAP)

In 2019, NECC secured a two-year, $140,000 Massachusetts Direct Access Training Grant to, once again, offer the successful Effective Supervisory/Leadership Training Program free of charge to qualified businesses within the Merrimack Valley. The second MA Workforce Training Fund grant continues the popular program offered in 2016-2018 when 104 employees from 23 different companies attended and successfully completed the 10 module, 40-hour noncredit training program. A local employer survey revealed the business need of providing incumbent employees with supervisory skills so those employees could be promoted from within the company itself.
