Training and Education Assistance

Upgrading your skills can lead to the right job.

For many career seekers, finding the right job right now is the logical way to go. But if you are uncertain which job is right for you, or if you lack necessary credentials/experience, training may be what’s needed to help reach your career goals.

Financial aid may be available to eligible candidates through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014.

Please Note: We have expended funding and are not currently accepting scholarship applications. Please periodically check back for updates on funding availability. Limited funding is available for individuals who have been recently laid off or terminated, receiving reemployment assistance (unemployment benefits), and unlikely to return to working in their previous occupation. Additional eligibility criteria will be required to be met.  Contingent on availability, funding will be for eligible in-demand and Targeted Occupations.
