Adult Basic Education.
Federal funding for Adult Basic Education (ABE) is currently authorized under the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), also known as Title II under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. Although the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act included substantial new funding for workforce development, there was no new funding designated specifically for ABE. As we begin to rebuild our economy, it is vital to ensure that everyone who wants to work has the skills and opportunity to do so.
