Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Regional and Local Plans  

Regions

WIOA envisions a workforce development system that is customer-focused on both the job seeker and business, and anticipates and responds to the needs of regional economies.  The purpose of regions is to align workforce development activities and resources with larger regional economic development areas.  The development of comprehensive regional partnerships facilitates this alignment. 

Regional and Local Plans  

Regional and local plans provide the framework for local areas to define how their workforce development systems will achieve the purposes of WIOA.  They serve as a 4-year action plan to develop, align, and integrate the region's or local area's job-driven workforce development systems, and provides the platform to achieve the region's and local area's vision and strategic and operational goals.
