The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), Office of Workforce Development manages the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA is a federal program that was signed into law in July 2014, and went into effect in Georgia in July 2015.
WIOA is the nation’s principal workforce development legislation, providing funds to address the employment and training needs of dislocated workers, low-income adults and youth to ultimately help Georgia businesses meet the needs of today and the future. The Governor has appointed the State Workforce Development Board (SWDB) to administer WIOA funds and designated Office of Workforce Development as staff to SWDB, assisting in the regulation of WIOA funds which are administered throughout 19 Local Workforce Development Areas across the state.
On Monday, August 6th, the MAX Leadership Network convened to learn the latest about the TCSG Office of Workforce Development from Assistant Commissioner Joe Dan Banker. Click here for the presentation.
