Public Comment Concerning the Triangle South Workforce Development Board Plans of Service - Program Year 2017

On July 22, 2014, the United States Congress passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) [Public Law 113-128] which rescinded the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires each Workforce Development Board (WDB) to develop and submit, in partnership with the local chief elected official, a comprehensive four-year plan to the state. The Triangle South Workforce Development Board’s four-year plan was submitted in May 2016. Annually, each WDB is required to make yearly updates to the four-year plan. The WIOA Program Year 2017 Plan provides current information and will be effective July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018. The Comprehensive Four-Year Plan (Program Year 2016) is maintained and updated, as appropriate.

In accordance with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, Section 108(d), the workforce development board shall make copies of the proposed local plan available to the public through electronic and other means, such as public hearings and local news media; allow for public comment not later than the end of the 30-day period beginning on the date the proposed plan is made available; and, include with submission of the local plan any comments that represent disagreement with the plan.

Therefore, the public is invited to review the current DRAFT of the Triangle South Workforce Development Board’s Plan for Program Year 2017.

Comments must be submitted to the board in writing no later than 4:00 pm on Thursday, June 15, 2017. Email recommendations should be sent to trianglesouthworkforce@cccc.edu with the subject line “WIOA Plan-Public Input” on the above-listed date.
