Signed July 22, 2014, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), this public law supersedes the
Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser
Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Visit our new page on the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act for updates (Created 02/24/2015)
The U.S. Department of Labor has released the 2015 Lower Living Standard Income Level (LLSIL) and the
Department of Health and Human Services has released the 2014 Poverty Income Guidelines. These rates
are used to determine eligibility and low income for programs operated under the Workforce Investment Act.
You can view them on our Policies and Guidance information page as an attachment to WIAPL No. 10-04.
All areas should begin using the new rates immediately. The Ohio Workforce Case Management System
has been updated with the new standards. (posted April 6, 2015)
