Fast Track Workforce Incentive Grant
The Fast Track Workforce Incentive Grant is a new financial aid program that addresses workforce needs by encouraging adults to pursue a certificate, degree or industry-recognized credential in an area designated as high need.

A few programs at CoxHealth to support and recognize veterans include the first annual CoxHealth Wellness for Warriors Expo in September, free yoga classes, free parking spaces for veterans, and placing American flag magnets on the doorframes of veterans who are hospital inpatients as a way to recognize vets for their service.
