The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded grant program that provides Youth, Adult and Dislocated Worker funding throughout our Commonwealth to Local Workforce Development Boards, State Agencies, and Non-Profit 501(c)3 organizations that engage in the required/allowable WIOA activities.
The Statewide Reserve Fund is authorized as part of the Federal Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) under 20 CFR 682.110 (b). The goal of the Statewide Reserve Fund is to promote innovative approaches to meeting the goals laid out in the WIOA State Plan and provides a mechanism to allow for statewide initiatives outside of the established Local Workforce Development Areas.
