Why Pay for CDL School through a WIOA Grant?
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is legislation aimed at getting Americans onto a career track that will lead them to lasting success. This act also assists employers in the process of finding and retaining not just any workers but good workers. To accomplish this, there are WIOA grants available to help fund job training and education for eligible candidates.
Currently, there is also another new grant available specifically for those who’ve lost their job due to COVID-19. Applicants will need to provide proof of job loss due to COVID-19 in order to take advantage of this new funding.
What does this mean for you? Simply put, it means this: Your training at CDL of AL may cost you nothing out of pocket! To find out whether you’re eligible for a grant and to learn more about the program, we invite you to contact us and ask all the questions that are probably growing in your mind right now.
