WIA Dislocated Workers

The purpose of the program is to reemploy dislocated workers, improve the quality of the workforce, and enhance the productivity and competitiveness of the nation's economy by providing workforce investment activities that increase the employment, retention, and earnings of participants, and increase
occupational skill attainment by the participants.

This program is designed to increase employment, as measured by entry into unsubsidized employment, retention in unsubsidized employment after entry into employment, and extent of recovery of prior earnings.

For cross cutting goals, the program intends to enhance customer satisfaction for participants and for employers.

The employment goals will be measured using Unemployment Insurance Wage Records systems and customer satisfaction goals will be measured by sampling.
