WIOA & Local Plan Overview

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law on July 22, 2014, and became effective July 1, 2015. WIOA supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. WIOA is designed to help both jobseekers and businesses: WIOA addresses the needs of jobseekers through establishing a workforce system that helps them access employment, education, training and support services to succeed in the labor market; WIOA addresses businesses’ needs by matching them to the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

As required by WIOA, the Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico has developed modifications to the Local Plan to achieve WIOA priorities in New Mexico’s Central Region. After the public comment period and draft reviews, the WCCNM Local Plan will be presented to the WCCNM Full Board for approval at its October 19, 2020 virtual meeting at 1:30 p.m.
