Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

This webpage provides access to the State Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Combined and Unified Plans, as well as State Strategic Plans developed under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998.


    Under the provisions of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Governor of each State or Territory must submit a Unified or Combined State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor that outlines a four-year strategy for the State's workforce development system. The publicly-funded workforce development system is a national network of Federal, State, regional, and local agencies and organizations that provide a range of employment, education, training, and related services and supports to help all job-seekers secure good jobs while providing businesses with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

    States submitted their four-year WIOA State Plans for Federal review and approval in early 2016. The Departments of Labor, Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and Agriculture, whose programs are addressed, provided review and approval for each Plan for the period July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018. The WIOA State Plans provide valuable information about the various investment, programs, and initiatives underway across the United States to serve our jobseekers, students, and businesses across the country.
