Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act

In late May 2014, the  International Economic Development Council shared a “Federal Alert” regarding the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act which was introduced in Congress earlier the same month.
 
The legislation will replace the current federal workforce development system under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and ties in some additional corresponding legislation related to adult education and literacy, services for disabled workers, other employment services, and youth employment programs.
 
This act in alignment with CEDAS goals to support workforce development initiatives locally and nationally. We encourage our members to review the legislation. Parties interested in writing to legislators may find tools and contact information in the announcement.
