Money to Help You Keep a Job

Starting a new job and have some expenses that may end it before it begins? Have a job but your car just broke down?

Then a Job Access Loan (JAL) could be just what you need. You may qualify for a JAL if:

  • You’re employed or have a verifiable job offer
  • You need the loan to get or keep your job
  • You are eligible for Wisconsin Works,  including legal custody of minor children living with you
  • You meet other financial and non-financial criteria specific to your reason for requesting the loan

What a JAL Can Help with

Job Access Loans (JALs) are short-term, no-interest loans up to $1600. They are intended to help you pay for things related to getting or keeping a job. They can be used for things like:

  • Vehicle repairs
  • Down payments for a car
  • Driver’s License Fees
  • Work clothing or uniforms

Under some circumstances, JALs may be used for housing or paying fines. The expense must be approved before you can receive the loan.
