We encourage you to re-visit the WIOA stakeholder consultation and listening sessions for more information about the input received on implementing provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which was signed into law in 2014.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in coordination with the U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS), is working diligently to ensure that states, local areas, other grantees, and stakeholders are prepared for the implementation of WIOA.                                      

The WIOA consultation and listening sessions provided stakeholders the opportunity to give ETA feedback on the services and resources needed for states, local areas, non-profits and other grantees, and other stakeholders to implement the Act. 

ETA asked specific questions to spur your ideas and suggestions about how stakeholders view the ideal implementation of WIOA.  ETA utilized a chat feature to record feedback and questions it received.
