WORKFORCE INNOVATION AND OPPORTUNITY ACT – PROGRAM

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) offers an integrated and comprehensive range of services consisting of workforce development activities benefiting job seekers—adults, dislocated workers, youth, incumbent workers, new entrants to the workforce, veterans, individuals with disabilities—and employers.

WIOA’s objective is to meet employers’ needs by increasing employment, job retention, earnings, and occupational skills among all job seeker populations. Job seekers first must meet WIOA eligibility requirements to receive WIOA-funded services. More information on the WIOA program may be viewed on the WIOA orientation video below. All applicants must watch the orientation video prior to contacting a case manager or attending a eligibility determination meeting.

To learn more about WIOA, view the video.
