Webcast Series

In coming weeks States will be submitting the required two-year modification WIOA Unified and Combined State Plans.  This webcast training series provides an overview of the submission requirements for that modification as well as considerations for preparing plans in future years across core programs and partner programs.

The Departments of Labor, Education, Agriculture, and Health and Human Services have prepared a set of webcasts to assist States and their public workforce system partners in the development and the submission of the two-year modification to the WIOA Combined and Unified State Plans.  The content is intended to also provide information that can be used by States in future planning cycles. These presentations are designed for staff who have gained familiarity with WIOA planning during the development of the initial WIOA State Plan as well as new staff who may not be as familiar with the various requirements and opportunities offered by the two-year modification process. Many of these presentations list considerations that may impact the State decision-making in determining what aspects of their State Plan to modify at this time or in the future.

Start with the “Overview” module, then choose all or some of these presentations to view based on your needs and interests.
