Finish Line Grant Application Information

Funding is provided by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) through the Cape Fear Workforce Development Board and the Columbus County NCWorks Career Center.

Finish Line Grants can be used for course materials, housing, medical needs, dependent care, or other financial emergencies that students face through no fault of their own. These funds are not intended to be used for routine expenses, nor as a supplement to a student’s educational funding sources. Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
