Overview

WIOA participants who are employed, but are not receiving self-sufficiency wages, may be eligible for WIOA training services. The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) 100 percent Lower Living Standard Income Level (LLSIL) guidelines PDF can be used to set minimum criteria for determining whether WIOA Title I participants receive self-sufficiency wages in their workforce areas. 

The DOL 100 percent LLSIL guidelines for determining minimum self-sufficiency wages were issued in the Federal Register and became effective May 23, 2017.
