The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was created in 2014 to promote program coordination and alignment of key employment, education and training programs at the Federal, State, regional and local level.  WIOA was designed to provide workforce investment activities to increase employment, retention and earnings and the attainment of recognized post secondary credentials.  Through these activities, the quality of the workforce will improve, economic self sufficiency will increase and workers will meet the skill requirements of employers and enhance the productivity and competitiveness of our nation.
