Source: LEAD Center
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) (Public Law No. 113-128) aims to improve federal workforce development programs and provide new opportunities to advance economic self-sufficiency for millions of Americans with and without disabilities. WIOA repeals and supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
The LEAD Center has created a summary of the major amendments to Titles I and IV of the Workforce Investment Act from a disability perspective, focusing on those provisions in the legislation pertaining to workforce development and vocational rehabilitation systems of particular applicability to individuals with disabilities.
