Pennsylvania WIOA State Plan July 1, 2016-June 30, 2020 (submitted 3/2016)


State Policies & Initiatives: 

“An effective workforce development system will be built on a foundation of alignment, innovation, employer engagement, accountability structures and improved data. Pennsylvania will look beyond WIOA to set broad goals for a comprehensive workforce development system that increases the number of “jobs that pay,” expands the number of “schools that teach” the skills necessary to succeed in college and careers, and is a model of “government that works.” We will do this by designing and implementing a workforce development system that addresses three core challenges facing the workforce system..”
