AIM assists Massachusetts employers of all sizes access grants from the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program. Enacted in 1998 and financed entirely by Massachusetts employers, the Workforce Training Fund provides resources to businesses and workers to train current and newly hired employees.
 
When using AIM’s partnership with Commonwealth Corporation you will be provided with valuable information and assistance in preparing your Workforce Training application.
 
In addition, AIM has been approved to be a Training Provider for recipients of Workforce Training Grants.  We offer a wide variety of training programs, many of which can be conducted at your company.
 
For companies with under 100 employees, the Express Grant program is a natural choice. Please see below for more information.
 
What we do:
 
  • Provide basic information on Workforce Training Fund programs and the various types of grant processes;
  • Conduct a training needs assessment;
  • Design and deliver training programs that address specific organizational needs — and budgets;
  • Act as liaison between employers, other value-added resources, and government agencies;
  • Provide direct assistance and support throughout the grant application process in a completely flexible manner.

As our military reshapes and retools over the next several years, more than one million highly-trained service members will leave the military for jobs in the private sector. Transitioning service members bring critical skills to the workplace—IT capabilities, network security, project management, materials management, leadership, problem solving and more.
 
AIM is proud to be a sponsor of New England Tech Vets’ mission to facilitate the transition of veterans to civilian careers, reduce veteran unemployment, and provide America’s veteran workforce access to jobs in New England and beyond. We encourage our member companies to sign up and participate in this great initiative.
