Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act


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
