Key components of the Act will enable customers to:

easily access the information and services they need through the "One-Stop" system;
empower adults to obtain the training they find most appropriate through Individual Training Accounts, which allow adult customers to "purchase" the training they determine best for them;
ensure that all State and local programs meet customer expectations
In Kankakee and Livingston counties, funding for the WIA program is provided by the Grundy Livingston Kankakee Workforce Board.
