The Tennessee Bureau of Workers’ Compensation recently launched the Next Step Program, which assists injured workers who are unable to return to their pre-injury employment. Many receive their workers’ compensation benefits and are unsure how they will support their families in the future. The program is designed to provide these injured workers a means to return to employment. The Next Step Scholarship is available to workers injured on the job on or after July 1, 2018. Up to $5,000 per year in financial assistance is available to obtain new job skills through a Tennessee college. Read more about the program here.
