Local and Regional Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Plans

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires Workforce Development Boards to develop and submit a comprehensive four-year local plan and regional plan to the state for approval. Plans must address current and future strategies and efficiencies to advance the continuing modernization of the workforce system and the creation of a customer-centered system. It must also support the strategy described in the State Plan and be consistent with the State Plan.
