Guide to help unemployed Colorado residents to navigate the wioa grant process

Are you interested in receiving job training but don’t have the necessary funds? You may be eligible to receive financial aid through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program.  Funding for education and skills training can vary from person to person or county to county, but you hope you explore all of your options to help you get back to work.

According to the ETPL outtake form we provide our students after completion of their certificate, in 2017 Digital Workshop Center helped 80% of our unemployed or dislocated students to get back to work.   Some of those students were able to attend DWC classes through WIOA grants.
