Eligible military spouses may receive up to $4,000 (with a fiscal year cap of $2,000) from the Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Program, which can help them pursue education, training, licenses, certificates and Associate degrees leading to employment in Portable Career fields.* Waivers will be available for spouses pursuing licensure or certification up to the total maximum assistance of $4,000.
