Workforce Investment Act (WIA)

Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Programs are primarily intended to help adults, dislocated workers, youth, and other target groups with relevant training programs and intensive job counseling services designed to help them become better prepared for new careers.   WIA funding also supports employers with rapid response services when they are undergoing plant closure or laying off employees.

As an employer, WIA offers a wide variety of programs that can benefit your company through tax credits, training assistance, training cost reimbursement, and other useful services.  To learn more about these programs, please click on the links below.
