WIOA Adults and Dislocated Workers Program
As a local workforce development board, Workforce Partnership receives funding to provide both basic level services to all job seekers and intensive services to adults who are low-income, who have been laid off and/or who have specific barriers to employment. Our Adult and Dislocated Worker Programs are “intensive” programs and provide a wide range of services and funding for eligible participants to assist them with their employment goals. Individuals can receive both “Basic Services” (which are available to anyone regardless of income, lay off status or residency AND “Intensive Services” (which are only available to enrollees of the Adult/Dislocated Worker Program). If you would like to receive assistance in establishing and reaching your career goals, whether that includes needing training/education or simply targeted resume and job search assistance, please reach out to one of our workforce centers and they can assist you in taking the first steps!

The Dislocated Worker Program eligibility is based on layoff status.
