Just want to let everyone know is that you can get a WIA (Workforce Investment Act) grant to pay for trucking school. The qualifications for WIA are Unemployed, Underemployed, or Dislocated Worker (Due to layoff, Seasonal Work). It can usually be approved within two weeks. All states provide WIA funding through there Workforce, Worksource, or OneStop Career Centers. They usually cover all the tuition, and materials needed to attend training/school. They do not provide living expenses. So be prepared with savings or make arrangements for your living expenses. There are a number of documents going to be needed for WIA. They are your DL, SS card, HS Diploma or GED if you have one, SS cards for everyone living in your household. Proof of being unemployed, underemployed, or dislocated copies of any type of assistance or income. These are pretty much the basics. Also if I were you research the schools around you to see which one you want to attend. Otherwise they will choose for you and you may not like the one they choose. Hope this information is helpful to someone. Save yourself the grief others have had with so called company paid cdl training or loans at ridiculous interest rates. This way you owe no one anything.
