Qualified applicants are provided a substantial grant from the state to help pay for education towards their chosen field of study.
Individuals who may qualify for the grant are the following:
- All adults, age 18 or older, are eligible to receive services. Additional assistance is available to unemployed individuals who have been unable to obtain work or those who are employed but need additional training to reach self-sufficiency.
- To be eligible for the dislocated worker program, you must have received a lay off notice or have been laid off due to a company closure or mass layoff.
- You may also be eligible if you are currently unemployed and are unlikely to return to your prior occupation due to economic conditions in that industry.
