From job training to unemployment insurance, we have resources and support to help you through.
Funding for Job Training
If you’ve been laid-off due to COVID-19, you may qualify for up-to-$16,100 in grant funding to attend a job training, certificate, or professional development program — this money does not need to be paid back.
If you need unemployment insurance assistance, contact 1-800-244-5631 or visit the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) website to file a claim. Important reminder: If you are furloughed, you can still file for unemployment.
Emergency Child Care
If you are you an essential worker and have an issue retaining employment because of emergency child care, you may apply for support by contacting workNetservices@ccrpc.org.
If you’ve lost job-based health insurance coverage, here are some important resources for how to access healthcare coverage.
