Resources

Each year the NRS support project develops products and tools for state adult education staff and local providers to supplement their own information and knowledge of the NRS. Our most recent tools include the LEAP I & II toolkits to assist with understanding changes to the NRS as a result of WIOA implementation.  Check here for relevant products and tools.


Leveraging WIOA II Funds with other Resources

December 17, 3:00 p.m.

WIOA II federal funds are just one source of adult education funding. To build comprehensive service models, state and local programs are braiding other federal, state, and local public and private funds. Come here about this strategy from an adult charter school leader.
