The WIOA Policy TeamUnder the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), each State 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.
The Combined State Plan is for the period July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018. The WIOA State Plans provide valuable information about the various investment, programs, and initiatives underway to serve jobseekers, students, and businesses across the country.
