Unified State Plan for Program Year 2020-2024

In 2014, the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was passed. The WIOA  is designed to help job seekers gain employment, along with accessing education, training, and support services.  WIOA requires that states submit a Unified or Combined State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor that outlines a four-year strategy for the State’s workforce development system.  States submitted their four-year WIOA State Plans for Federal review and approval in early 2016. The WIOA State Plans provide valuable information about the various investments, programs, and initiatives underway to serve our jobseekers, students, and businesses across the country.

Florida’s core partners (Adult, Dislocated Worker  and Youth Program, Adult Education and Family Literacy Programs, Wagner-Peyser Act Program, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), and Division of Blind Services) submitted a unified plan, with the first two program years being approved and published on the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) website.

2022-2024 WIOA Unified Plan Two-Year Modification

The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act Unified Plan Two-Year Modification identifies major changes in Florida’s economic landscape and state-level changes to the administration of workforce programs across agencies implemented after 2020 and is available for public comment. The plan reflects a collaborative effort between CareerSource Florida and its core partners, which include the Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida Division of Blind Services, the Division of Career and Adult Education, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. Aligned with federal and state law, the plan emphasizes streamlining services, empowering individuals, universal access, continuous improvement, board governance and leadership, and ethics and transparency.
