Workforce Investment Act (WIA)

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) is a federally funded program that provides supportive and training services to eligible customers. In Utah, WIA is administered by the Department of Workforce Services. WIA serves:

  • Adults - age 18 and up, citizens or eligible non-citizens and low income.
  • Dislocated Workers - dislocated from employment, citizens or eligible non-citizens.
  • Youth - age 14–21, citizens or eligible non-citizens and low income.
