Do you want a higher paying job, but do not know how to get started? Are you concerned that you may not be able to qualify for the training you need because you do not have a high school diploma? If so, we have some good news!
On July 22, 2014, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law. The WIOA federal grant covers training expenses for individuals who have been laid off or whose household income is at or below the federal poverty level. It is designed to benefit job seekers, laid-off workers, underemployed workers, people who are about to enter the workforce, older youth, veterans, persons with disabilities and employers.
From technology to finance, or healthcare to building construction and repair, WIOA provides individuals with the funding they need to complete training programs for high-demand occupations.
The minimum qualifications for WIOA funding include being unemployed, being a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and having registered for selective service (if male).
Through collaboration with our community partners, you can access WIOA funding, and get yourself on track to a life of financial security and overall well-being.
