DHRD’s WIA Program is designed to assist participants (must be enrolled in a Federally Recognized Tribe or 1st Generation CSKT Descendant and living on the Flathead Reservation) with Temporary Employment (Work Experience) to gain the necessary skills to obtain employment on your own.

On-the-Job-Training is available for employers- DHRD will reimburse ½ the wages for a period of 3 – 6 months.  At the end of the Training the Employer will be required to pick the participant up permanently.

If applying for employment related assistance (job bonus, clothing, gas, etc) you will need to provide proof of employment and all documentation listed below for self and family. All transportation (vehicle repair, gas, etc) must have proof of insurance, registration, and driver’s license).

The Program is not designed to assist with school expenses (tuition, fees, books, supplies). We do not have it in our budget.
