What is WIOA?
WIOA stands for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. This replaced the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) in July 2015. WIOA was designed to help residents get the training and education to launch careers in local industries. At the same time, WIOA also provides a steady stream of workers to area businesses to keep the economy growing. Services are broken down into youth, adult, and dislocated worker.
Where we offer Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
"Without WIOA, I would not be enrolled in college looking towards a better future," says Amanda. She was working 2 jobs and longed to earn her GED before the birth of her son. With WIOA, she earned her GED, found her first family-supporting job, and enrolled in college. She is currently studying to become a Substance Abuse Counselor. Congratulations, Amanda!
