Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Program


The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Program that CAPDD operates provides Core, Intensive and Training Services to Adults, Dislocated Workers and Youth. The WIOA was established in 2014 and replaces the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), which is similiar, but had different goals and objectives. The main function of the WIOA is to assist job seekers to gain and maintain employment. If a job seeker is unable to obtain employment after receiving the initial Core and Intensive Services then Training services may be provided. Training services include, work experience, which pays a client a stipend as they gain experience while working on a job, and Occupational Skills training, which provides educational funding, not to exceed two years, while a client attends post-secondary school to complete a course of study leading to a credential that can be utilized to seek employment. Core and Intensive services are available to all customers. Customers who receive training services must meet certain eligibility requirements.
