The Division of Workforce Services is responsible for the delivery of various state and federally funded employment and training services. Services are delivered through 15 regional one-stop centers and satellite offices. Contact our IowaWORKS Centers for the office nearest you.

The regional one-stop centers and offices provide a variety of services to meet the workforce and workplace needs of job seekers, dislocated workers, unemployed persons and Iowa businesses through partnerships of state and local service providers. They provide job counseling, job training, job placement and assistance to special needs populations.

Visit the Regional Web site of your region to find IowaWORKS Center locations, hours of service, and services offered. Most services are provided free of charge!

Federal Bonding Program:
A unique tool to help a job seeker obtain and keep a job. The program issues fidelity bonds, and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. It is a business insurance policy that protects the employer in case of any loss of money or property due to employee dishonesty. It is like a "guarantee" to the employer that the person hired will be an honest worker. Click Here for details on the program. For further information contact:
