WIOA Implementation

Event presentations from the 4-day training event,  WIOA: Implementing Change, was held in Columbus from Oct. 20-23, 2015 where you can review handouts from all presenters.

WIOA provides Ohio new opportunities to:

• Advance partner linkages through state, regional, and local planning
• Increase return on investment through performance criteria and integrated case management system through core programs
• Enrich services to customers by serving individuals with barriers to employment, including individuals with disabilities and through the use of career pathways, especially for disengaged young adults
• Enhance service delivery through the procurement of the OhioMeansJobs Center operators, certification of the OhioMeansJobs Centers, and the designation of local areas
