Financial Assistance for Job Training | TCC Center for Workforce Development -

Financial assistance

Nothing says you’re ready to do the job like industry-approved credentials. But if cost is a barrier, TCC’s Center for Workforce Solutions offers financial assistance to qualifying individuals through 2 state-funded programs.


This General Assembly-funded program enables eligible students to attain an industry credential at 1/3 the cost – if you complete the course and pass it. And you can achieve success in weeks, not months.

Workforce Financial Assistance

This program – known as FANTIC – provides funding for eligible adults who want to obtain an industry-recognized credential or license through an approved workforce training program.

To be eligible, you must:

  • live in Virginia for at least 1 year
  • have earned a high school diploma or GED certificate
  • be in compliance with Selective Service requirements
  • not be enrolled in an associate or bachelor’s program
  • enroll in a pre-approved workforce credential program
  • be ineligible for other forms of tuition assistance, including employer funds or any state or federal programs
  • demonstrate financial need

This financial aid will pay for 90% of the cost for an approved workforce training program. Qualifying students will need to pay the 10% student portion at the time of registration.
