What is WIOA?

Who can WIOA help?
What is the approval process for WIOA Customers?

​​The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) helps job seekers succeed in the labor market by providing access to employment, education, training, and support services while matching employers with skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. 

Many people qualify for WIOA funded activities. Customers may be eligible for training to update current skills or learn skills for a new career if their present occupation is not in demand. 

The process includes completing paperwork and providing documents to validate eligibility criteria. Prospective customers will meet with a WIOA Team Member at one of the job centers, who will help guide them through the process.

Southeastern Wisconsin Workforce Development Board is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst Southeastern Wisconsin Workforce Development Board strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
