IWT is not intended to fund the periodic safety and refresher courses necessary for a business to continue to operate (i.e. First Aid, CPR, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration certifications), but to assist with the extraordinary needs of the business. IWT is funded by the Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
