Work Force Investment Act

America's Job Center

The Work Force Investment Act (WIA) is a federally funded program that offers financial assistance to individuals who wish to obtain vocational training and have un-met needs after applying for the tuition fee waiver and financial aid. The program will help you find a job or train for a new career. It is important that you choose a career with a labor market. If jobs are not available in your local area, you will need to consider relocating or commuting to another area.

Workforce Investment logoThe WIA Office is located in Room 121, next to the Admissions and Records Office. This office offers a computer lab, internet access, a study area, and a small lending library for textbooks. Come by and see if you qualify for vocational training, books, supplies, uniforms, tools, fees, testing, transportation assistance, and other school or job-related needs. This is not a loan and does not have to be repaid. You can be on Financial Aid, EOP&S, CARE, DSPS, CalWorks, unemployment, veteran's benefits, scholarships, and still receive WIA assistance. This is not an entitlement program, you must qualify and then it is based on need and funds available at the county level. For more information call (530) 741-6830 or email: wia@yccd.edu.
