Financial Aid for WIOA/TAA Training
Job seekers who are out of work, and who need training to change career paths or improve their job skills, may be eligible for financial assistance through two federal programs – the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program. The goal of these programs is to help the unemployed find a new position in a field that offers promising career opportunities. Your local workforce development office can help you learn if you are eligible for financial assistance under either of these two programs.
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Training
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was established in 2014 and created “one stop” workforce centers in each state that bring a full range of job seeker assistance services together under one roof. For job seekers who qualify, financial assistance can be used to enroll in training and/or classes delivered through an approved provider (typically a college or a training school), and pay for course fees, books, and other materials.
If you are interested in attending classes or training using this financial aid, you must contact the workforce development office in your area to determine your eligibility and begin the process of applying for a training account.
Book an appointment at a Nevada Job Connect office for more information on how to obtain financial aid.
