    If you don't have the skills necessary to secure sustainable employment you may be eligible for training services through:

    • On-the-Job Training (OJT);
    • Group-based training in special-high demand areas; or
    • Individual Training Account (ITA) grants.

    Training grants are approved based on eligibility guidelines, the strength of the application, feasibility of the training plan, and availability of funds. Interested Erie County residents should attend an Orientation to One Stop Services to learn more about career development services at one of Erie County's full-service One Stops:
