The Harold Alfond Center for the Advancement of Maine’s Workforce has access to $60 million in grant funding. With their business partners (including the UMaine Hutchinson Center), they are poised to serve 24,000 Mainers with short-term training by 2025. This includes financial support of up to $1,200 per worker through December 2022.
This means that Mainers like you can get the workforce training you need through training vendors like the UMaine Hutchinson Center with no cost to you or your employer. What an incredible opportunity!
How does this work?
This is an employer-driven program. That means in order to participate, your employer will need to become a Compact Member.
You don’t need to know in advance which UMaine Hutchinson Center professional development programs you want your employees to register for but if you’d like to review some of our options, feel free to take a look here.

We’ll do our best to help you but our official role here is a third-party training vendor. We administer the trainings themselves and the Harold Alfond Center for the Advancement of Maine’s Workforce ensures that the funding goes where it’s supposed to and helps employers and employees along the way.
