How do you track the $20,000/year subsidy limit for Express Program grants?

Modified on Mon, 10 Jul 2023 at 10:20 AM

Eligible businesses can cumulatively receive up to $20,000 in grants funds per calendar year, and the $20,000 resets at the start of the calendar year. You do not have to request the full $20,000 in a year; it is simply the limit. You can also submit multiple applications throughout the year as training needs emerge using our rolling application process. 

To determine the calendar year your courses, fall under you will want to locate the "Approved Start Date" on the top of your approved agreement (this was the date you selected in your application as the selected agreement start date). 

The year the approved start date is in is the year the funds will be allocated from. In the example agreement to the left, this agreement has a start date of June 26, 2023, which means the $2,450.00 has been pulled from calendar year 2023 funds for this business. Their $20,000 would reset for any agreements with an approved start date of January 2024 or later. It is okay if some of your courses on an agreement are approved under one calendar year but don't happen until the next one (there will be overlap between years, and that is okay!). We track approved funding amounts for each business, so if you are unsure of how much your business has left to apply for in a given calendar year, email us at
