SUBJECT: Partner Participants Access to WIA Services 

During this period of Workforce Investment Act implementation, it is important to ensure access to WIA services by all customers.  Specifically, we are concerned about the integration of the Jobs First Employment Services (JFES) program within the One-Stops.  When designing the client flow within the One-Stop, JFES participants should not be subject to more restrictive eligibility requirements than any other individuals in accessing WIA services.

TANF recipients are specifically identified in WIA legislation as priority customers and receive core and intensive services by participating in the JFES program orientation and case management services.  JFES participants are prime candidates for other WIA intensive services and training.  Boards should not be designing a client flow that makes it more difficult for JFES participants to receive WIA intensive and/or training services, such as ITAs, than any other One-Stop customer.

In designing and refining the client flow within the One-Stop, if your staff would like technical assistance integrating the JFES program into the One-Stop, please contact your DOL WIA and/or WtW technical assistance liaison.
