Issuance of incentive grants is an allowable use of statewide funds and no longer a required use of those funds under WIOA. Illinois, through the Illinois Workforce Innovation Board (IWIB), has determined that state incentive grants for performance along with the state added performance component of the minimum training expenditure (MTE) requirement for the WIOA Title I Adult and Dislocated Worker programs will be issued annually.
This policy outlines the established incentive bonus and sanctions policy based upon levels of achievement. The actual amount and instructions for receipt of the awards will be announced in a WIOA Notice on or before June 30 of each year.
