All adults, 18 years and older, are eligible for Core Services.
Priority for Intensive and Training Services must be given to recipients of public assistance and other low-income individuals (70% Lower Living Standard Income Level).
Services are free of charge for customers who are newly entering or attempting to re-enter the workforce. These services include technical support from knowledgeable staff in preparing or updating resumes, identifying skills from past jobs, volunteer work, hobbies, school or social situations. Customer’s skill levels and available employment openings will be matched on OhioMeansJobs.com.
Assistance is available to eligible individuals who need assistance with short-term and low-cost employment development costs such as credentials testing, job readiness and basic skills training, short-term non-credit courses or workshops, relocation and required work clothing.
