The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) is the nation’s largest source of training and employment services. To provide greater local and state flexibility and responsiveness in administering the program, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) allows states to apply for waivers from federal regulations. Mathematica conducted a study of states’ and local areas’ use of eight WIA policy waivers. This report focuses on profiles of waiver use in 12 local areas that were part of in-depth site visits.
