You may be eligible for financial assistance through one of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs. Oftentimes, this aid can be used in conjunction with aid provided through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


“WIOA is landmark legislation that is designed to strengthen and improve our nation’s public workforce system and help get Americans, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, into high-quality jobs and careers and help employers hire and retain skilled workers.”
