Workforce Credential Grant

Virginia is offsetting the tuition on select workforce training programs at community colleges by 66% with the new Workforce Credential Grant (WCG). Incentive funds to offset the cost of tuition
 on select high-demand credentials programs are now available and these programs are open for registration. Eligible participants will pay just one-third the cost of tuition once their program credential is received. Students needing additional assistance for the one-third of tuition may be eligible to receive FANTIC funds (financial assistance). See eligible programs below.
