Public Comment Concerning the First Planning District Local and Regional Workforce Development Area Plan

On July 22, 2014, the United States Congress passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) [Public Law 113-128] which rescinded the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998.

WIOA requires each workforce development board to develop and submit, in partnership with the local chief elected official, to the state a comprehensive four-year plan.  The WIOA four-year plan will be effective July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2024. 

In accordance with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, Section 108(d), the workforce development board shall make copies of the proposed local and regional plan available to the public through electronic and other means; allow for public comment not later than the end of the 30 day period beginning on the date the proposed plan is made available; and, include with submission of the local plan any comments that represent disagreement with the plan.

Public Comment Period Oct 2, 2020, to November 2, 2020.
