Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides increased flexibility for state and local officials to establish broad-based labor market systems using federal job training funds for adults, dislocated workers and youth. The law mandates coordination among a range of federal job training programs, including the Employment Service, adult education and literacy programs, welfare-to-work, vocational education and vocational rehabilitation. WIOA’s goal is to provide workforce development services to employers and workers through a universally accessible, information-driven, one-stop career center system.
