Get the Training You Need! 


Employers in the region need a highly-skilled workforce.  There is training available from area schools for nearly every high-demand occupation and we may be able to provide financial help.  


Residents of Plaquemines, St. Bernard, or St. Tammany you may qualify for up to $9,000 and more in some cases!


If you are un- or under-employed, or you were laid-off and have just never gotten back to your same earning levels you will very likely qualify for funding assistance for tuition, bookssupplies, feestransportation, childcare, other supportive services.  If you are between the ages of 16 and 24 and have other barriers, you may qualify for up to $10,000.


We may be able to help even if you are already enrolled in school.
