Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act


The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is effective on July 1, 2015.  As the field transitions to WIOA, NYATEP will compile staff developed resources and partner content to aid in staff professional development.

NYATEP WIOA Recomendations

Throughout the spring of 2015, NYATEP members worked collectively to develop a set of recommendations to submit to the federal government in advance of the final rule.  The workgroup consisted of a cross-section of workforce boards, community colleges, public libraries, community-based organizations, government agencies and literacy/adult education providers.  RECOMMENDATIONS
