Adult Program


The purpose of WIOA Title IB adult program is to provide basic career services to individuals age 18 and older who are at or lower than a level of self-sufficiency and meet one of the two eligibility categories of an adult.


All Montana adults are eligible for basic career services. Individualized career services may be provided to adults that have been determined to be in need of these services in order to obtain employment, or obtain and retain employment that allows for self-sufficiency. Training services may be available for adults who have met the eligibility requirements for individualized career services in order to obtain employment. WIOA provides a statutory priority for adults 18 years of age and older who are: 1) recipients of public assistance; 2) other low income individuals; or 3) individuals who are basic skills deficient..


The Job Service Operations Bureau (Bureau) in the Montana Department of Labor and Industry has statewide oversight and administrative entity responsibilities for the WIOA Adult Program in Montana. These responsibilities include fiscal controls, grant management, participant data collection and tracking, service provider training, technical assistance, and policy interpretation and development. Adult services are provided locally through contracts between the Division Management Services Bureau and service providers.


There are four performance standards for the Adult Program. The standards measure placements, median earnings and credential attainment.
