WIOA Pre-Screening Application

The purpose of the Pre-Application Screening Form is for applicants to provide information that can be reviewed to determine their possible eligibility for WIOA program services. The completion and submission of the form by an applicant does not constitute a definitive eligibility determination but allows the CDC Central Eligibility Coordinator reviewing the form to decide if the applicant should be requested to report to your local American Job Center to complete a final eligibility determination and WIOA program enrollment.

Thank you for your interest in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Program.

Due to the high volume of applications received, each application is placed in a queue in the order it was received. We are processing applications and completing eligibility requirements as quickly as possible.
