Workforce Investment Act

Job Placement assistance     

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) may be able to help you find the job you want.

WIA provides three levels of services for adults and dislocated workers: core, intensive, and training.  Participants move from one level to the next depending on their employment and training needs. 

To be eligible for Staff-Assisted Core Services, an applicant must be eighteen (18) years of age or older and meet citizenship and Selective Service requirements.  Individuals must meet other eligibility criteria to receive intensive, training, and support services.

Staff-Assisted Core Services

  • Job search and placement assistance including career counseling
  • Workshops

If employment cannot be achieved through staff-assisted core services, then more intensive services can be provided.

Intensive Services

If employment does not result from intensive services, training services may be provided.
