Dear Colleague Letter

Re: WIOA Joint Blog

Date: July 6, 2015

Dear Colleagues:

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is the catalyst to re-invigorate America’s workforce development system, in order to better serve jobseekers -- including the low-income individuals we serve in the CSBG Network.  The Office of Community Services (OCS) believes that the CSBG Network can be an important partner in developing effective employment and training strategies that move our citizens to economic self-sufficiency.  We encourage you to get involved in your state- and local-level discussions about WIOA and the revitalized American Job Center system.
