Professional Certification Assistance
The Professional Certification Assistance program aims to improve the recipient's financial situation with a grant or an interest free loan towards career-enhancing certifications and licensing. In many professions, an individual can obtain additional credentials to obtain a raise or even progress to the next step in their career.
