Workforce Investment Act (WIA)

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) at CGTC provides financial assistance to economically disadvantaged, special needs populations, and dislocated workers who have lost employment due to technological changes, plant closures, or foreign competition.

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 Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Putnam, Twiggs, and Wilkinson counties.

Eligibility is determined by economical and employment status, as well as choice of program. Job placement assistance is offered to all WIA participants upon completion of occupational training. For additional information and applications, call the WIA Office at (478) 757-6621.
