The MassHire North Central Career Center hosted a workshop for businesses on January 30th at the career center. This information session provided an overview of the Workforce Training Fund programs (WTFP) available from the commonwealth. The Workforce Training Fund helps to make staff training more affordable for local businesses.

Topics covered in the workshop included: requirements of each program (General, Express, and Small Business Direct Access) funding availability, and the application process. The workshop gave participants the information needed to determine which grants are best suited for their business needs and know how to begin the application process. The career center also provided access to grant writers to assist with the application process. Thank you Kristen Rayne & Commonwealth Corp for a terrific presentation. to read more
