Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Governor of each state must submit a Unified or Combined State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of Education that outlines a four-year workforce development strategy for the state’s workforce development system. The requirements for each state's plan and later modifications are detailed in guidance letters from these federal departments.
With a common-sense approach and a business-centric focus, Ohio is making important reforms to the workforce system. These reforms will help businesses find the workers they need and help workers find good careers, earn sustainable wages and support their families. In partnership with local providers and stakeholders, the state of Ohio has made much progress toward achieving these reforms. Ohio submitted a comprehensive, 2016 Combined State Plan detailing the state’s successes and vision for Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth (WIOA Title I), Adult Education and Family Literacy (Title II), Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education, and Senior Community Service Employment. In addition, the 2016 Combined Plan adds reforms to Wagner-Peyser (Title III), Vocational Rehabilitation (Title IV), and Jobs for Veterans State Grant. The four-year plan took effect July 1, 2016.
