Jefferson County CAC - Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act


Description of Services

The primary goal of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, hereafter WIOA, is a program that assists the customer to secure permanent, unsubsidized employment, which will lead to individual self-sufficiency. A customer may progress through Career or Training services to achieve this goal. Training services are for those with no marketable job skills and must be in a growth or demand occupation that can lead to a self-sufficient wage.

WIOA consists of three main programs:Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth Programs.

Adult Eligibility: Income guidelines are followed if a prospect is working. Household, Family, income is compared to 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. If a customer is not employed at the time of application, there are no income guidelines. However, each customer is treated on a case-by-case basis to ensure suitability with classroom training and professional prospects.

Dislocated Worker Eligibility: Documented loss of employment due to a business closure or lay-off. A customer may be currently unemployed and unlikely to return to his or her prior occupation due to economic conditions in that industry.

If this is an EMERGENCY, please call 9-1-1.
