Dear Administrators of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Title II Adult Education Program,


WIOA, Title II Adult Education Programs may elect to spend 2019–2020 funds through September 30, 2020. These funds may be used to continue services for students, support teachers in professional development and planning, and purchase supplies including Personal Protective Equipment.

Required Action

  1. Track expenditures starting July 1, 2020 in two cohorts:
    1. Cohort 1 are expenses from the 2019–2020 year
    2. Cohort 2 are expenses from the new grant cycle 2020–2021
  2. Complete the 2019–2020 final Expenditure Claim Report (ECR) by October 15, 2020. There will be no extensions of this date as this information is needed to complete a federal report.
