Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Program

KCC has been designated as the service provider for the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program in Kankakee and Livingston counties. The primary goal of WIOA is to help people realize their potential by providing employment and training opportunities with guidance, encouragement, and support.

Persons who are either unemployed, underemployed, veterans, or affected by business closures or layoffs may be eligible for the WIOA program.

Services available at no charge to qualified WIOA clients include skills assessment, vocational counseling, classroom training, and job search skills training.

Another primary goal of WIOA is to help businesses solve employment-related problems, thus resulting in increased profitability and productivity. The WIOA program provides employer services in four areas: recruitment, training, retention, and financial incentives.
