Workforce Investment Act: The Law and its Implications for Battered Women and Their Advocates

The Recovery Act provides $2.95 billion for the Adult, Youth, and Dislocated Worker employment and training programs, including $500 million for the Adult program, $1.25 billion for the Dislocated Worker program, and $1.2 billion for summer jobs and other youth activities. The Act raises the age eligibility for the Youth program from 21 to 24. The Act also specifies that a priority use for the Adult funds is for public assistance recipients and other low‐income individuals, and specifies that the funding can support the provision of needs‐related payments and support services. The Recovery Act provides $200 million for the Dislocated Workers National Reserve. The Recovery Act provides $750 million for a program of competitive grants for worker training and placement in high growth and emerging industry sectors, of which $500 million is designated for research, labor exchange and job training projects that prepare workers for careers in energy efficiency and renewable energy. The Act directs the Secretary of Labor to give priority to projects that prepare workers for careers in the health care sector funded through the remaining $250 million.
