ATTN: Share this info on CAA’s

Career Advancement Accounts (CAA’s) are individualized training accounts specifically targeted to Ohio’s workers impacted by the downsizing and closures of companies and who have limited access to other training programs.  Individuals must be a) 18 years of age or over; b) U.S. citizens or authorized to work in the U.S; c) Properly registered for Selective Service; and meet one of the following listed in (d) through (f):

d) Laid off through no fault of their own due to plant closure or individual layoff; or

e) At risk of layoff and categorized as incumbent workers; or

f) Displaced homemakers.

CAA’s originally allowed $3000/year per person but all programming must be completed by June 30th of 2010 so shorter programs are necessary at this point.

Please contact your local One-Stop for more information.  You may also read the ODJFS Guidance online at http://bit.ly/m7HLp.

  1. Please note that these dollars may be used for Incumbent Worker training if the individual is at risk for layoff! This is critical since we are hearing that traditional IWT funding is not as accessible as it has been.
