You may be eligible for grant money to attend school.
Worker Retraining is a partnership between community and technical colleges and the Washington State Employment Security Department.
The Worker Retraining Program provides educational and career planning to help dislocated and unemployed workers retrain in a vocational field and return to work. Students may qualify for assistance with tuition, fees and books, and continue to receive unemployment benefits while attending one of WVC's many occupational programs.
- Are you currently receiving Washington state unemployment benefits?
- Have you recently (within 24 months) exhausted your unemployment benefits?
- Are you a U.S. veteran, separated from the U.S. armed services in the last 24 months, and can present your DD214 honorable discharge?
- Are you a displaced homemaker dependent on incomes that are no longer available?
- Are you now unemployed, but used to be self-employed, and can show that your business declined in income over the last three years?
- And are you enrolled in a professional/technical program at WVC?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you may be eligible for WRT grant funding to enroll in a WVC professional and technical program.
