Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds may be used to award workforce grants to employed and unemployed individuals who meet the eligibility requirements for WIOA enrollment and are currently unable to obtain or retain employment providing a self-sufficient wage. These workforce grants, referred to as Individual Training Accounts (ITA), provide funding for educational/occupational skill training for eligible job seekers. Individuals use the ITA to purchase approved training programs offered by eligible training providers included on the Mississippi Statewide List of WIOA Eligible Training Providers.
