Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, or WIOA-Adult and Dislocated Worker Programs will help job seekers and workers access employment, education, training and support services to succeed in the labor market and match employers with skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
The WIOA-Adult Program is open to any Ohio resident, 18 years of age or older, with a family income below 200% of the lower living standard income level for your family size (ex. Family of four less than $74,029) and a need for the services.
The WIOA-Dislocated Worker Program is open to anyone 18 years of age or older that has lost their job from an Ohio company or is an Ohio resident that has lost their job in another state. Also, you must be unlikely to return to the industry you had worked in prior. You could also be eligible if you have taken part in a Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) with the State of Ohio, are trade eligible, a locked-out worker, experienced a buyout and forced early retirement, transitioning service members and recently separated veterans, are unemployed due to a plant closure or substantial layoff, were self-employed and your business has failed, are a displaced homemaker or the spouse of a military veteran that was forced to quit your job due to relocation.
Anyone who needs help finding employment that qualifies maybe able to get help with some of the following:
You may just need a little help with writing a resume or interview skills.
You could have skills but they are outdated, we could look at upgrading those skills to meet today demanding labor market.
If you have no marketable skills we may be able to look at a certificate, license or degree program.
We can look at the cost of the program, required books, fees, uniforms, tools, equipment, test fees, just to name a few.
We may be able to help with the childcare, transportation, and relocation expenses.
Each individual will be assigned to a case manager to help you though the process from beginning to successful employment.
Those in Washington County who are 18 years of age or older and interested in participating in the WIOA program need to visit the main office pick up an application and/or talk to someone in the Employment and Training Department.
