Issue Brief 16-20
April 21, 2016

On April 5, the Department of Labor published program year (PY) 2016 allotments for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth Activities programs, as well as for the Wagner-Peyser Employment Service and Workforce Information Grants programs. Total funding for the five programs increased almost 3% compared to the prior year, although 21 states saw a decline in funding.

This Issue Brief provides a breakdown and summary of the allotments, and uses them to update FFIS estimates of the WIOA governor’s set-aside amounts for PY 2016.
