Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Financial Assistance

WIA provides assistance with tuition, textbooks, and required supplies. A daily stipend for the use of child care, travel expenses, and other expenses is provided to eligible students. WIA serves residents of all Kentucky Career Center - Cumberlands counties.
