State Policy > Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act Implementation

On July 22, 2014, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law, reauthorizing WIA for six years, from 2015 through 2020. WIOA opens the door to states’ greater use of sector partnerships and career pathway models and includes higher levels of accountability and outcome data reporting.

With the due date for WIOA state plans less than a year away, many states are getting serious about planning. This page contains overview materials, as well as news, analysis, and recommendations for states looking to embark on a skills-focused, inclusive WIOA planning process.
