Charlotte Works plays a huge role in up-skilling the local workforce through funding training for those with barriers to employment. Charlotte Works is looking to partner with local training providers who offer accredited programs that result in a post-secondary credential upon program completion. All approved programs must lead to occupations that are considered in-demand for the Charlotte area.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity (WIOA) Act requires that states and local area workforce boards maintain an eligible training provider list (ETPL) and list of programs that are certified to receive students using WIOA funds. This list is a tool for participants seeking training to identify local providers and programs and access relevant information including cost and length of program.
To receive WIOA funds, students must qualify for services under WIOA and they are only permitted to use these funds in programs that appear on the eligible training provider list. Inclusion on the ETPL itself does not guarantee that WIOA funds are available for enrollment. Programs are approved at the state level, but each workforce board can certify programs based on local demand.
Charlotte-area training providers can apply to be listed on the state’s ETPL and certified by Charlotte Works by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
