Job Service North Dakota, along with the Workforce Development Council, Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Department of Instruction (Adult Education), announce that the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) State Plan Modification is open for public comment beginning February 15 through March 1, with a live comment period on February 22.
The WIOA State Plan guides North Dakota’s workforce development system in assisting state residents, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, to move into high-quality jobs and careers while also helping employers hire and retain skilled workers.
Under law, each state’s governor must submit a WIOA State Plan to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor that outlines a four-year strategy for the State’s workforce development system. The publicly funded workforce development system is a national network of agencies that provide a range of employment, education, training, and related support services. States must have approved plans in place to receive funding for core programs.

Live Comment Period
There will be a live comment period Tuesday, February 22 from 8 to 10 a.m. via Microsoft Teams. The public is invited to participate online or in person at one of the state’s nine Workforce Centers. Public comments are also being accepted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
