                        Last Updated: October 05, 2021

The “Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act” or “WIOA” (which supersedes WIA), provides federal funds to states to help job seekers, workers and businesses with career services, job training and education (as of July 1, 2015).

Career services include unemployment and job search assistance, information on the job market, job readiness, career planning and counseling, program for non-English speakers, financial aid, supportive services and financial literacy.

Job seekers can get employment, education, training, and support to succeed in the job market and increase wages.  The program also matches employers with the skilled workers they need.

WIOA Policy Manual - The current WIOA Policy manual as listed here replaces all previous WIA policies (AP’s)  listed under WIOA Memo’s. The policy manual is a “living document” and may be updated from time to time as required by law, regulation or policy.  Although parts of the manual have been finalized, as a whole the policy manual at this time is considered a draft. 

Many of the documents and forms contained on this web site were created using PDF, Word, and Excel software. Viewer software is required to open these documents. Links to this free software is available on our browser information page.
