Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) 2020 Combined State Plan – The Committee was provided with information on the development of the New York State 2020 WIOA Combined State Plan. Under WIOA, states are required to develop a strategic plan every four years that focuses on strengthening and improving their respective workforces. The draft 2020 WIOA Combined State Plan builds on the previous plans efforts to improve and strengthen New York State’s workforce development system. New York State envisions a unified workforce development system that is regionally coordinated and programmatically seamless, delivering workforce training, business services, and statewide job linkages to all New Yorkers. To implement New York’s vision and goals, the partners have and will continue to seek several strategies for the One-Stop Career Center System. These ensure all partners work together to align and coordinate services, providing job seekers and businesses seamless service delivery. In the draft 2020 WIOA Combined State Plan, the partners will continue to work together to implement strategies to further build upon successes and the vision of a unified workforce development system inclusive of education, training and businesses.
