Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act

UA WIOA

The final Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Bill is over 1200 pages long. What it boils down to once all the editorial is gone is WIOA is a federally funded program that assists eligible individuals to gain the skills needed to attain and maintain long-term employment at a self-sufficient wage. This is accomplished through the following strategies:

  • Alignment with mandatory and recommended partners
  • Emphasizes work based learning and apprenticeships
  • Changes to performance measures looking at measurable skills gains and credential attainment
  • Switches the focus of youth programs to out of school youth 
  • Enhances services to the unemployed
