Requirements and Considerations for WIOA Unified and Combined State Plans for 2020 - 2023

States are required to submit their WIOA Unified and Combined State Plans in March 2020. 

This webcast training series provides an overview of the specific content and submission requirements for the Strategic Plans prepared for 2020-2023 period. The Departments of Labor, Education, Agriculture, and Health and Human Services hope that these webcasts can assist States and their public workforce system partners engaged in the strategic planning process.


We hope that this TA webpage can provide useful information for the States for any periodic updating of the Plan based on changes in the economy, governance structures, or other developments which carry implications for the full execution of the Plan. These presentations are designed for staff who've gained familiarity with WIOA planning during the development of the initial WIOA State Plan and 2016 modification as well as new staff who may not be as familiar with the various requirements and opportunities offered by the approved Information Collection Request document.
