1.3.4 Appeals Process for Non-Designation of Local Areas

Effective date: July 1, 2020

If a unit of local government, or a grant recipient, is denied a request to be designated as a local area they may appeal to the CWI using the appeals process outlined in Section VI.c of Wisconsin's Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Combined State Plan.

If the appeal is denied, the appellant may appeal to the United States Secretary of Labor. If the Secretary of Labor determines that the appeals process in the State Plan was not followed appropriately, or that the area in question meets the requirements in WIOA 106(b)(2 or 3), then he/she can require that the area be designated a local area.1
