Do you need money to help pay for school?
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) may be the answer. You could be eligible to receive a non-repayable scholarship up to $12,000 and/or transportation supportive services up to $100/week.
Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Individual Training Accounts (ITA’s) are available to eligible and appropriate participants when it is determined by a career planner that they will be unlikely or unable to obtain or retain employment that leads to self-sufficiency or higher wages from previous employment through career services alone. An ITA is limited in cost and duration and must result in employment leading to economic self-sufficiency or wages comparable to or higher than wages from previous employment. ITAs are not entitlements and shall be provided to eligible participants on the basis of an individualized assessment of the person’s job readiness, employment and training needs, financial, social and supportive needs, labor market demand and potential for successful completion, as documented on the participant’s Individual Employment Plan (IEP). Participants choose career training with Region VI Eligible Training Providers in consultation with career planners.
For more information contact the WIOA Career Planner in your county at least two weeks before the start of classes to determine eligibility.
