Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and the Workforce System

WIOA, which supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, presents an extraordinary opportunity to improve job and career options for our nation's workers and jobseekers through an integrated, job-driven public workforce system that links diverse talent to businesses. It supports the development of strong, vibrant regional economies where businesses thrive and people want to live and work.

For more information see WIOA and ION.


The WIOA Quick Start Action Planner (QSAP) is an interactive, self-paced assessment tool designed to help leaders at all levels of the public workforce system plan for this transformation and prepare for implementation of WIOA. The QSAP will help you identify areas of strength and focused areas for improvement in your workforce system and connect you to targeted resources that can help you to prepare and plan effectively.
