Illinois Seeking Comments on WIOA Unified Strategic Workforce Development Plan

1/26/16 - The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014 requires the governor of each state to outline a four-year strategy for the workforce development system by preparing either a Unified State Plan encompassing the following federal programs: WIOA Title IB, Title II-Adult Education, Title III-Wagner-Peyser, and Title IV-Vocational Rehabilitation Services; or a Combined State Plan that includes these partners plus at least one of certain other partner agencies.  Illinois is using the Unified State Plan approach. The state will submit the Unified State Plan in accordance with guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Labor.
