Illinois' WIA (Workforce Investment Act) program:

(get a grant for training/certification to help you get a job -- covers lots of learning programs, technology, CDL, etc)
each county has a slightly different program, so check the map and see where the local office is, most likely an in person interview and some paperwork will be required to qualify for the free money.

Chicago's Technology investment program:

* Chicago resident
* Recently laid off
* Previous income of $25K - $75K
* At least a high school diploma
