Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Implementation

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federal law that substantially changes how workforce programs are delivered nationwide.  In March 2016, the District submitted a Unified State Plan to the US Departments of Labor and Education detailing how it will use the new law to create an innovative, comprehensive plan to move the city forward.  DC’s State Plan lays out specific strategies and operational components for overall workforce system improvements, focusing on five key areas: system alignment, access, performance, business alignment, and youth services.  There is special attention paid toward high-growth industries to ensure that DC residents are prepared for the jobs of today and of tomorrow.
