GAP Tuition Assistance Program meets a need

Iowa's community colleges, including Iowa Central Community College, have been given an opportunity to assist low-income individuals and families. The GAP Tuition Assistance Program was established to provide funding to individuals for need-based tuition assistance in order to complete continuing education certificate training programs for in-demand occupations, including but not limited to: information technology, health care, advanced manufacturing, and transportation and logistics. Any other industry that might be designated as "in-demand" by a regional advisory board would also be able to establish certificate programs for such individuals. Since non-credit certificate programs are not eligible for federal financial aid, this program bridges the funding gap for those students pursuing short-term certificate courses.
