In order to implement the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which was signed into law in 2014, workforce and education professionals need resources, technical assistance and guidance.
Technical assistance ensures that staff are equipped to realize enhancements to the one-stop career center system, as envisioned in the law.
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in coordination with the U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS), works diligently to ensure that states, local areas, other grantees, and stakeholders are prepared for the implementation of WIOA.
This resource page provides information and resources for states, local areas, non-profits and other grantees, and other stakeholders to assist with implementation of the Act. It will be updated to reflect newly developed materials, and additional technical assistance webinars.
We encourage you to utilize the technical assistance webinars presented here for more information about the key provisions in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
WIOA'S THREE HALLMARKS OF EXCELLENCE
- The needs of businesses and workers drive workforce solutions, and local boards are accountable to communities in which they are located.
- One-Stop Centers (or American Job Centers) provide excellent customer service to all jobseekers and employers, and focus on continuous improvement.
- The workforce system supports strong regional economies, and plays an active role in community and workforce development.
The WIOA official website and the Innovation & Opportunity Network (ION) Community of Practice on WorkforceGPS are working in concert to provide you with the most up-to-date information concerning WIOA. This graphic above shows what can be found on the two different websites. We encourage you to utilize this as a cross-reference tool or guide.
