The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) will host a financial conference covering administrative, cost and audit requirements that apply to federal and state grant awards that it makes to entities that carry out programs TWC administers, including Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I and other programs carried out by Local Workforce Development Boards, Apprenticeship, Self Sufficiency Fund, Skills Development Fund, the Senior Community Service Employment Program, and competitive grant awards. (Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) providers may instead attend TWC’s Adult Education and Literacy WIOA Summer Institute in June 2017. Similar information will be covered during that conference, but in specific connection with AEL awards.)
