The core programs under WIOA are: (1) Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth formula programs administered by DOL; (2) the Adult Education and Literacy programs administered by the Department of Education (ED); (3) Wagner-Peyser Employment Service program administered by DOL; and (4) and the programs under Title I of the Rehabilitation Act that provide services to individuals with disabilities administered by the ED. Other programs administered by DOL that are authorized under Title I of WIOA include: Job Corps, YouthBuild, Indian and Native American programs, Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker programs, and evaluation and multistate projects.*

The intention of WIOA is to make a number of improvements to the public workforce system and its delivery of services to jobseekers, workers, and employers. The key features of WIOA are to ensure 1) coordinated and complementary services through a Unified State Plan requirement; 2) evidence-based, data-driven programs through a common performance accountability system; 3) local, coordinated service delivery through collaborative practices; 4) development of integrated intake, case management and reporting systems; 5) refocused efforts on youth; and 6) business services to employers through the promotion of work-based training.*
