Federal Workforce Training Programs

Do not count the payments and benefits a client receives from participating in a federally-funded, workforce training program. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) codifies these programs. Before excluding income, verify that the program receives funding from a federally-funded workforce training program.

Possible programs include but are not limited to  

Youthbuild,

Summer Youth,

Job Corps, and

paid classroom training.  

You do not generally count any allowance, stipend, earning, non-wage compensation, grants, or participation payments the client receives from these programs.

There is one exception to this rule. Count the income a person 19 years of age or older receives for on-the-job training.
