Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, qualified jobseekers may be eligible to receive an Individual Training Account which will pay the cost of a short-term, specialized training program to help them find a new job or advance in their careers. Some examples of approved training programs include:

        • Certified Nurse Assistant 
        • Computer/Office Skills Training
        • Facility Maintenance Technician
        • Medical Assistant
        • Hospitality Training 

To be eligible to apply for WIOA funding through a Boston career center, you must be a(n):

        • Income-eligible Boston resident
        • Dislocated worker of a Boston company
        • A Boston resident currently receiving unemployment insurance (UI) benefits
Training Opportunities Program Section 30

Section 30 approval allows unemployment insurance (UI) claimants to collect benefits while enrolled in full-time, approved training. The Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) waives the usual requirement to look for employment while customers attend training so they may develop marketable skills and then find suitable employment.

If you are approved for training under Section 30, you can:

        • Continue to collect UI benefits while participating in a job skills training program. DUA will waive your work search requirement while you are enrolled in full-time, agency-approved training.
        • Receive up to 26 weeks of extended UI benefits.
IMPORTANT

Section 30 does not pay the cost of training. You must apply for Section 30 during the first 20 weeks of your claim.

You can request a Section 30 Application 2 ways:

        • ONLINE: Request online by using your Online Weekly Questionnaire and DUA will e-mail the application to your UI Online Inbox or directly to your home.
        • BY PHONE: Contact the TOPS Unit at 617-626-5521 and speak with a staff member

Ex-Offender Services

Job Seeking can be particularly challenging for an ex-offender. Almost every employment application asks in some fashion if a person has a criminal record. We understand that a person with a criminal record is going to face greater challenges in obtaining work, but many individuals with records do find employment and meaningful careers.

If you have a criminal record and are having issues finding employment, a CareerSolution career counselor/job developer can help you:

  • Obtain a copy of your Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and discuss how it affects your job search
  • Practice interviewing and learn to respond to questions about your CORI
  • Learn how to job search with a criminal record
  • Provide assistance on how to develop a resume and cover letter that highlights your skills and experience
  • Explore the industries and occupations for appropriate employment options
