COMBINED STATE WORKFORCE PLAN

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires the governor of each state to submit a four-year Unified or Combined State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor.  Governor Wolf will be submitting the Combined State Plan for Pennsylvania which will outline the commonwealth’s workforce development strategy including the six core programs: Adult, Dislocated Worker, Youth, Wagner-Peyser, Adult Basic Education and Vocational Rehabilitation.  In addition, the Combined State Plan will also address a number of optional programs including career and technical education, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Jobs for Veterans and Reintegration of Ex-Offenders, to name a few.

 

Here’s the link to the draft PA WIOA Combined State Plan:
