The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded training and job program that creates a new approach providing workforce investment activities through statewide and local systems. Authorized workforce investment activities provided at the local level benefit job seekers, dislocated workers, youth, foster care participants, incumbent workers, new entrants to the workforce, veterans, persons with disabilities, and employers.
