In addition to work-study, the Ready to Work staff can work with your K-TAP case manager to help you access resources for transportation and car repairs, child care, uniforms and work clothing, school supplies, license fees, criminal background checks and drug tests, driver’s education, and a $250 educational bonus for high school/GED or college graduation.
