Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) Local Plan now available for public comment

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires each workforce development board (WDB) to develop and submit, in partnership with the local chief elected official, a comprehensive four-year plan to the State of Wisconsin. The Local Plan reflects the current and future strategies and efficiencies that the Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin will use to address the continuing modernization of the workforce system and creation of a customer-centered system: where the needs of business and workers drive workforce solutions; where One-Stop Career Centers provide excellent customer service to all jobseekers and businesses; and where the workforce system supports strong regional economies, as well as alignment with updated State and local priorities.

The local plan is available for viewing here.
