8VAC40-160-60. Awards of student grants.

Students may be awarded grants based on the following activities and requirements:

1. In order for an individual to receive a grant for an eligible noncredit workforce training program, the individual must:

a. Be enrolled in an approved noncredit workforce training program that begins at an eligible institution after the fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) for which the noncredit workforce training program is approved unless otherwise stated by the eligible institution.

b. Be domiciled in the Commonwealth as provided in § 23.1-502 of the Code of Virginia. This determination is made by the eligible institution.

c. Submit a completed agreement during the eligible institution's published application period for the noncredit workforce training program based on the criteria outlined in section 8VAC40-160-50 C.

d. Provide initial payment of one-third of the cost of the noncredit workforce training program.

2. Students shall be funded on a first-come, first-served basis within the institution's published application period based upon the application receipt date. Students shall be funded in this order until all allocated funds are obligated.

a. If a student fails to provide all requested information necessary for determination of eligibility by the first day of class, the next eligible applicant shall receive the grant.

b. Due to the first-come, first-served nature of the program, the application period must specify both the first and last date an application shall be accepted.

3. A student may use other forms of financial assistance to pay for his responsible cost of the noncredit workforce training program, which includes the initial one-third cost of the noncredit workforce training program and an additional one-third cost if it is determined that he has not completed the noncredit workforce training program in accordance with the institution's policies. Forms of financial assistance may include financial aid, employer assistance, or vouchers through other training assistance programs or other third party payers, such as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

4. Grants may be reduced or eliminated if moneys in the fund are fully allocated prior to the end of the fiscal year.
