The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult Program is funded by the Department of Labor and serves individuals and helps employers meet their workforce needs. It enables participants to obtain meaningful, self-sustaining wage employment by providing them with intensive job search assistance and training opportunities.

WIOA Title I Dislocated Worker Program

The Dislocated Worker program is designed to help workers return to the workforce as quickly as possible and overcome barriers to employment. When individuals become dislocated workers as a result of job loss, mass layoffs, global trade dynamics, or transitions in economic sectors, the Dislocated Worker program provides comprehensive services typically accompanying vocational training to assist in re-entering the workforce.
