WIOA Dislocated Worker Program

Thanks to the Montgomery County (Dayton) WIOA Dislocated Worker Program, Napier Truck Driving School now has access to grant money that helps laid-off workers obtain new jobs with comparable wages. This grant provides eligible students with the tuition assistance needed to enroll for training to obtain a Class A CDL in order to start a new career as a professional commercial driver. This grant allows students to receive proper CDL training without having to pay any of the training or program fees.

The aim of this program is to increase the employment, retention, and earnings of dislocated workers by increasing their work readiness, educational attainment, and occupational skills and by connecting them to jobs in demand.

Who does this grant help?

During the last program year, Ohio served 7,242 dislocated workers including veterans, individuals with disabilities, older workers, and displaced homemakers. 93% of the dislocated workers who found jobs were still employed nine months after exiting the program.

If you or someone you know is out of work, collecting unemployment, or has exhausted unemployment benefits, you may be able to use this grant to cover the costs and fee’s associated with the CDL training program at Napier Truck Driving School. Contact us today to see if you are eligible for this grant! You may be able to train for your CDL for free at Napier!
