Sources of Educational Funding

Long-Term Care Facility Employee Grants / Scholarships

The government offers grants to health care facilities to train their workers. Any long-term care facility (aka nursing home) that accepts Medicare / Medicaid patients will reimburse students for a portion of their CNA program costs upon employment for an agreed-upon period of time.  The amount reimbursed depends upon the percentage of Medicare / Medicaid patients in the facility population.  Some long-term care facilities also award educational scholarships to employees.

Sources of Educational Funding

You can sign up for WorkSource funding at any Employment Office to help cover the cost of your NA, CNA-2, and MA vocational training program if you are unemployed, or even if you are not on unemployment.  If you are working part-time or are under-employed, funding may be available to you through SE Works (also known as WorkSource Portland SE) or Human Solutions to help cover the costs of your training program.  Government grant money for NA, CNA-2, and MA vocational training can also be available through foundations who promote education after high school to students at risk, such as Job Corps, etc.
