Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
The WIOA is designed to help job seekers access labor market information, job leads, education, training and support services to succeed in obtaining self-sufficiency. One-on-one job search, classroom training, on-the-job training, career counseling, case management, and job retention services are available through the WIOA program.

- unemployed due to jobs lost to import competition
- unemployed farmers who have lost their farms
- displaced homemakers
Adults include individuals who are 18 years of age or older. Eligibility for the Adult Program is income based and can be determined after meeting with a staff member.
