Here’s How to Prepare Your Application to the Job Training Fund

The Job Training Fund application process is simple and user-friendly, but you should read and follow the instructions carefully to avoid having your application delayed.

Please contact us and we’ll help you with your application and answer any questions you have about the Fund or the application process. You can also call Kate LaPierra at New Hampshire Employment Security at 603-228-4083.


  • Plan on the application process taking approximately two months to complete. This is important for planning purposes, since no training can be funded unless a contract has been approved by the Office of Attorney General. Grant applications seeking grant funds totaling $70,000 or more have to be approved by Governor and Executive Council.
  • Determine the reasons why you would like to upgrade the skills of your workforce. Decide how you will measure the effectiveness of the training program.
  • Obtain a current Certificate of Good Standing from the Secretary of State. We recommend contacting the Secretary of State early in the planning process as it can take up to three weeks to receive your certificate.

  • Application Package with additional Proposed Training Forms as needed;
