Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is designed to help job seekers secure the employment, education, training and support services necessary to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. Several Continuing Education (CE) programs are funded by the The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Individuals who qualify for this grant are determined on a case-by-case basis, while funds are available.

Every year the core programs that form the pillars of WIOA help tens of millions of job seekers and workers connect to good jobs and acquire the skills and credentials needed to obtain them. With the implementation of WIOA, the Texas workforce system will continue to be a market-driven system, responding to the needs of employers and preparing workers for jobs that are available now and in the future.

WIOA authorizes and brings together the following core programs of federal investment under the workforce development system:

  • Employment and training services for adults, dislocated workers and youth
  • Wagner-Peyser employment services
  • Adult education and literacy programs
  • Vocational Rehabilitation state grant programs that assist individuals with disabilities in obtaining employment

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) currently administers three of the four core programs, and planning is underway to incorporate the fourth, the vocational rehabilitation programs, ensuring Texas is among the first to strategically align the core program provisions of WIOA.
