WIA (Workforce Investment Act)

The WIA provides the framework for a unique national workforce preparation and employment system designed to meet both the needs of the nation's businesses and the need of job seekers and those who want to future their careers. 

The Adult and Dislocated program is designed to help its clients gain job placement. With the use of the client's individual training accounts, our case managers will help determine which training program and training providers fit their needs.

The One-Stop system is the basic delivery system for services to Adult and Dislocated Workers. The One Stop provides certain services to all individuals 18 and older. Citizens can explore work preparation and career development services, and access a range of employment, training, and educational services through different levels of services to include: Core, Intensive, Training, and Employer services.
