The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law by President Obama on July 22, 2014. WIOA seeks to more fully integrate states' workforce and talent development systems to better serve employers and job seekers.
Wisconsin is currently in the midst of a two year phased implementation into WIOA, which supersedes the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). As the state's federally-designated workforce agency, the Department of Workforce Development is tasked with implementation of the law. WIOA seeks to more fully integrate states' workforce and talent development systems to better serve employers and job seekers.
Individuals interested in receiving employment and training services through WIOA should contact their local Job Center about applying for the program.
