Comprehensive, Case, Management Employment Program (CCMEP)

WIOA Youth Program Eligibility Application: APPLICATION


What is CCMEP?

Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP) has been developed to help the emerging workforce prepare for and find meaningful employment, and to break the cycle of poverty for thousands of Ohioans.

To address this challenge, the state of Ohio has created a new framework for serving low-income Ohioans ages 14 to 24, through an integrated intervention program that combines the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and the Workforce Innovation and  Opportunity Act (WIOA) Youth program.


What does CCMEP mean for Meigs County youth?

Designed to assist one of Ohio’s most vulnerable populations, CCMEP provides employment and training services to eligible, low-income individuals based on a comprehensive assessment of   employment and training needs, as well as a basic skills assessment.

Participants are provided services to support goals outlined in their individual opportunity plan, which may include:

  • Support to obtain a high school diploma
  • Job Placement
  • Work Experience
  • Other supportive services such as child care, transportation, and obtaining a Driver’s License
  • Leadership activities and financial literacy


What impact does CCMEP have on our local businesses and organizations?

Attention SNAP (Food Stamps) recipients

Due to the partial U.S. government shutdown, February SNAP benefits will be available on your EBT (Ohio Direction) card on January 16, 2019 and are meant to be used in February.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS IN FEBRUARY.

 This means that you may have two months’ worth of food dollars on your account this month. No food dollars will be added in February.  The early food dollars are meant to help with next month’s food.  We encourage our SNAP-participating customers to plan their purchases carefully so that they have money available to meet their food needs.
