Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) Scholarship
WIOA is landmark legislation that is designed to strengthen and improve our nation’s public workforce system and help get Americans, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, into high-quality jobs and careers and help employers hire and retain skilled workers.
What is the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act?
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in coordination with federal partners the U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS), collaborated to provide information and resources for States, local areas, non-profits, and other grantees, and other stakeholders to assist with WIOA enactment.
