Workforce Investment Act
The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) is a federally funded program that provides supportive and training services to eligible customers. In Utah, DWS administers the program. There are three categories:
- WIA Adults are age 18 and up, citizens or eligible non-citizens and low income.
- WIA Dislocated Workers are dislocated from employment and citizens or eligible non-citizens.
- WIA Youth are age 14–21, citizens or eligible non-citizens and low income.
WIA State Plans
DWS submits a five-year plan to the U.S. Department of Labor to detail how WIA funds are being spent to best support Utah residents.
