Introducing WIOA

WIA is Becoming WIOA

As of July 1, 2015, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) will be superseded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

Congress passed WIOA by a wide bipartisan majority and President Barack Obama signed it into law on July 22, 2014. It is the first legislative reform in 15 years of the public workforce system, and takes effect on July 1, 2015 (the first full program year after enactment).

WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

The enactment of WIOA provides opportunity for reforms to ensure the American Job Center system is job-driven—responding to the needs of employers and preparing workers for jobs that are available now and in the future.

Our Services

Services provided under WIOA are likely to remain fundamentally the same as under WIA, though there will be some changes. The information on our website will be continually updated to reflect these changes. Please follow the links below to learn about our services:
