Abstract

A recent law, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) P.L. 113-128, 2014, mandates services for youth and young adults (ages 14-24) with disabilities, including those with psychiatric disabilities or mental health conditions, to help them prepare for and obtain jobs and pursue careers that offer competitive salaries and benefits. This tip sheet provides information on who is eligible to receive WIOA Youth Services, where youth and young adults with disabilities can access services, and what services are available.
