View All pproved WIOA State Plans

The US Departments of Labor (DOL) and Education (ED) have announced the online availability of the approved Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Unified or Combined State Plans.  The public and workforce system stakeholders may view, download, or search the State Plans for information on how states are undertaking the implementation of WIOA.  The search feature provides users a method for searching any or all State plans based on a topic, word or phrase within a section, multiple sections, or the entirety of a State plan, and to compare strategies and practices.

 Under WIOA, the Governor of each State and outlying area must submit a Unified or Combined State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor that outlines a four-year strategy for the State’s workforce development system.  States submitted their four-year WIOA State Plans for Federal review and approval in 2016.  The Departments of Labor, Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and Agriculture, whose programs are addressed, provided review and approval for each State Plan for the period July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018.  The WIOA State Plans provide information about the various investment, programs, and initiatives underway to serve jobseekers, students, and businesses across the country.
