ADDENDUM I (Addenda 3 and 4) - Adult and Dislocated Worker Information
Eligibility is a key component of WIA administration and oversight. Enrollment of non-eligible participants may result in disallowed costs, which the Grant Recipient, (CLEO), may ultimately be required to repay from non-federal or non-State funding sources. It is therefore critical that files be reviewed early in the process to avoid improperly moving a participant through the system and incurring disallowed costs.
Adult and Dislocated Worker enrollment has two primary common eligibility elements:
Additionally, for an employed Adult or Dislocated Worker to be eligible for intensive services their earnings prior to registration must be below the LWIB self-sufficiency rate, which is set by each local WIB. (Documentation must be in the file verifying income level whether based on hourly wage or yearly income).
For a Dislocated Worker to be eligible, one of the following additional eligibility elements must be documented:
Note: The additional elements outlined above summarize the general eligibility categories listed in statute. See Workforce Investment Act Title I; Subtitle A--Workforce Investment Definitions Section 101 -- for further detail regarding Dislocated Worker eligibility. It is also critical that dislocation information is entered into the Work History screen in the Customer Detail Section of OSOS with the appropriate Dislocated Worker categories as noted above. Non-OSOS users will also be required to provide this information to the State so it is imperative their system is able to provide the data for validation purposes.
