WIOA Guidance

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed by President Barack Obama on July 22, 2014 after passing Congress with bipartisan support. WIOA reauthorizes and augments the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998.

WIOA requires state, regional, and local strategic plans that provide a road map for workforce activities in the years to come.

View the California Unified Strategic Workforce Development Plan 2016-2020  focused on fostering “demand-driven skills attainment;” enabling upward mobility for all Californians; and aligning, coordinating, and integrating programs and services.
