These slides are from our 2016 national conference, A Nation That Works: What's It Going to Take? Did you know that Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding can be used to implement Transitional Jobs (TJ) programs for jobseekers facing barriers to employment? It's true. Up to 10 percent of local WIOA training funds can be leveraged to implement transitional jobs programs for jobseekers facing barriers to employment. In fact, the legislation allows for all elements of the program strategy to be implemented. In this session, participants learned why Workforce Investment Boards should use their WIOA dollars for TJ programs and how communities can implement TJ successfully even in an environment of limited resources.
