For Additional Assistance

Attend an information session at the Dept. of Labor, 152 West St., Danbury on any Tuesday at 1:00 P.M. We recommend that you arrive an hour early to allow time for check-in as these sessions fill up quickly. If it is more convenient, you may attend one of these sessions at any Dept. of Labor office. Check with that office for days and times.

For students who do not qualify for Workforce Connection training funds, other training funds may be available to you through the CCSNC program. Funding is available for SNAP recipients. Eligibility for this funding is based on income. Our qualifying process determines what portion of the funding you may be eligible for.
