Amerigroup DC Supports UDC-WDLL Students and DC Residents Through a New Workforce Development Grant

Washington, DC — The University of the District of Columbia, Division of Workforce Development & Lifelong Learning (UDC-WDLL), is pleased to announce a game-changing workforce partnership with Amerigroup DC. In an ongoing commitment to bolster the DC community, Amerigroup DC is donating $64,500 to UDC-WDLL to help break down employment and job training barriers for students who are DC residents.

This generous financial contribution will be strategically invested in:

  1. Enhanced Connectivity: Suppling eligible students with mobile hotspots to bridge the digital divide, guaranteeing secure and reliable internet access.
  2. Transportation Solutions: Offering ride-sharing assistance to ease the financial burden of commuting to classes and other activities important to learning and career success.
  3. Educational Stipends: Incentivizing eligible students, so they can pay for the completion of credentialing and certification exams, and providing additional monetary rewards once they pass their certification exams.

These incentives are subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis. Eligible UDC-WDLL students must meet all necessary requirements within given deadline dates. For information on how to secure Amerigroup-funded support, email
