United States Department of Labor Seal LogoWhat is Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)?

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded employment and training program developed by The Department of Labor (DOL), in coordination with the U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS), to provide FREE financial assistance to workers in order to improve their skills and marketability. The program's main objectives are to meet the needs of employers, government, businesses, and job seekers in order to create a confident, valuable, knowledgeable, and employable workforce.

To be eligible for the WIOA funds, a person ought to have received a lay-off notice or ought to have been laid off due to a company closure or mass layoff. Workers may also be eligible if they are currently unemployed and are unlikely to return to their prior occupation due to economic conditions in that industry.

WIOA logoTo be eligible for the youth program, a person must be between the ages of 14 and 21, have low income, and have a substantial barrier to employment such as: deficient in basic literacy skills, school dropout, homeless, a runaway or a foster child, pregnant or parenting, an offender, or be an individual who requires additional assistance to complete an educational program, or to secure and hold employment.
