Financial Aid

Assistance with tuition is often very important for students in order to receive the education that they desire.

Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

WIOA is a federal program providing assistance to unemployed adults and dislocated workers (those affected by a plant closing or worker reduction). WIA may cover a significant portion of tuition costs.

For more information on WIA, contact Michigan Works! Agency at 1-800-285-WORK, or visit their website at


The MACC also offers some wonderful information on various forms of financial aid that may be available for prospective students.

Heart to Heart Healthcare Training offers scholarships for students to attend our Certified Nurse Assistant class. Please see below.

The Bridget Gakstatter Memorial Scholarship

Bridget was a very special person with such a kind and loving soul. Her mission in life was to spread love wherever she went. She always took the time to learn everyone’s name, ask someone how their day was, and always made you smile. She took the time out her day to make sure those around her, whether they be friends, family or even strangers, felt appreciated and loved. Bridget’s motto in life was to be kind to others – more love, less hate. Bridget spent much of her free time volunteering and helping others in any way she could. She volunteered at many different places including Habitat for Humanity, her church, and anywhere in the community where she was needed. The world needs more people like Bridget, and at Heart to Heart we want to reward the people that make a positive impact in this world.

This scholarship is dedicated to those individuals who show the same compassion for life, the same mission to spread love and kindness as well as the same dedication to helping others that Bridget did.

This scholarship will be rewarded once a year to a student of Heart to Heart Healthcare Training for free tuition into the Certified Nurse Assistant training program. The tuition of $900 for this scholarship will be donated to one of Bridget’s favorite charities – The ChadTough Foundation.
