Texas Workforce Funding Resources

Our online non-academic career training enhances Job Readiness and a Career Pathway for eligible students. Many of our training programs lead to Industry-Recognized Certifications.  

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) provides grants to workforce development boards that plan and administer the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

This scholarship program brings (1) training and employment for adults, youth, and dislocated workers, and (2) adult education and vocational rehabilitation programs to assist individuals with disabilities.

WIOA Dislocated Worker resource is intended to temporarily expand capacity to serve dislocated workers, including military service members, and meet the increased demand for WIOA employment and training services, with a purpose to reemploy laid off workers and enhance their employability and earnings.
Disaster Dislocated Worker Grants provide funding to create temporary employment opportunities to assist with clean-up and recovery efforts, when an area impacted by disaster is declared eligible for public assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or otherwise recognized by a Federal agency with authority or jurisdiction over Federal response to the emergency or disaster.  

WIOA covers tuition (and other required costs and fees) for approved eligible students.  We encourage you to check out our online programes identified on the Texas Eligible Training Provider Listing (ETPL).  Visit your local Texas Workforce Solutions office today.
