Public Hearing on Modifications to Vermont's United Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act State Plan
Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Governor of each State must submit a Unified or Combined State Plan to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor that outlines a four-year strategy for the State’s workforce development system. States must have approved plans in place to receive funding for core WIOA programs. States are required to modify their plans to reflect changes in labor market information, economic conditions, program changes, and state priorities every two years. The State Workforce Development Board (SWDB) is charged with assisting in plan development and modification, and for leading the public comment process.
SWDB will hold a public hearing conference call on Friday, April 20, 2018 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. to gather comments on proposed changes to the State Plan. Please use the following call in information: (877) 273-4202, room ID 435566250.
The modified plan is available at the State Workforce Development Board website. Written comments may be submitted up to Thursday, April 26, 2018 to Sophia Yager at the Vermont Department of Labor, 5 Green Mountain Drive, PO Box 488, Montpelier, VT 05601-0488 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
