Individual Training Accounts

The Individual Training Account (ITA) program, made possible by Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA), provides grants of up to $7,000.00 to help job seekers attend training programs to gain in-demand occupational skills.


ITAs are available as funding permits and are awarded only to income-eligible applicants who are deemed suitable and demonstrate the aptitude for the desired course of training. Prospective ITA applicants are required to complete OhioMeansJobs Summit County’s three-day Career Workshop and a WorkKeys assessment. Upon completion of these requirements, Employment Specialists work one-on-one with job seekers to determine if training is their best option.

Please note that completion of Career Workshop and the WorkKeys assessment does not guarantee the award of an ITA.
