Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a law authorizing federal funding for workforce development activities. It is the foundation of our workforce development initiatives and job-training programs for adults and youth.


WIOA gives government, nonprofit, education, and industry partners greater flexibility to work together. The result is career training programs that give workers the skills they need to get good jobs at family-sustaining wages and give employers the qualified workers they need to stay competitive.
