How is total number of employees calculated for the Express Program?

Modified on Mon, 10 Jul 2023 at 10:13 AM

We determine whether a business qualifies for 100% reimbursement based on the number of part-time and full-time Massachusetts payroll employees the business has. A business must have less than 101 employees in Massachusetts to qualify for up to 100% reimbursement through the Express Program. 


When entering the number of employees, you should include only payroll employees, not contractors or temporary workers that are employed by a staffing firm or another entity. Grant funds may be used to train only the payroll employees of the applicant who are employed in Massachusetts. (They are not required to live in Massachusetts but must work for a Massachusetts company and be included in Massachusetts payroll reporting.)


When filling out the application, you should enter the true number of W-2 Massachusetts employees that your company has at the moment of application. Example: if you're applying on March 1 and you currently have 99 W-2 Massachusetts employees, you would enter "99" in the respective field.
