WIOA Priority of Service for High-Need Adults: Reference Guide

CLASP has released a new memo in our WIOA Game Plan Opportunities for Action series. The memo serves as a reference guide on the WIOA adult program’s priority of service for “recipients of public assistance, other low- income individuals, and individuals who are basic skills deficient.”

Following recommendations for implementing and monitoring a strong priority of service, the guide includes text and citations from the statute, the final rules, guidance, planning requirements, and data collection in one place for easy reference. CLASP urges states and local areas to use these policies to implement a strong priority of service so that more high-need adults receive the employment and training services they need.
