The Intersection of Perkins, AEFLA and the WIOA: Which Costs Can Be Charged to Which Workforce Programs?

November 17, 2016 at 1:00pm Eastern

By: Michael Brustein, Esq.

Course Description – The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), and Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins) provide federal funding to help State and local areas develop programs aimed at providing career, technical and job-readiness skills necessary to compete and succeed in a global economy As a condition of federal funding, recipients must meet numerous requirements and accountability standards. There is often confusion regarding what program funds may be used for which workforce programs, particularly in light of the WIOA’s focus on providing flexibility to State and local areas to collaborate across systems and programs.  This webinar will respond to timely issues on how career and technical education (CTE) providers, AEFLA recipients, and One Stop Centers can effectively use federal funds to meet program, administrative, and local infrastructure costs.
