Maryland Training: What you need to know

The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and amended the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, is a federal workforce development law that provides for state and federal employment, education, job training, and support services. The law is designed to help jobseekers access employment, education, training, and support services and to match employers with the skilled workers they need.
For further information, see the Department of Labor’s WIOA website at www.doleta.gov/WIOA.
Employers that train workers through this system are eligible for grants, significant tax credits, and other benefits.

The Maryland Workforce Investment Act is designed to implement and supplement the federal WIOA and a number of other federal employment and training programs as well. The state will adapt to the WIOA as needed. The state Act is designed to coordinate resources from federal, state, and local governments, business, labor, and community-based organizations in training unskilled young people, disadvantaged adults, or disabled workers for entry into the workforce, and retraining laid-off and other dislocated workers. The state Division of Workforce Development and Adult Learning is responsible for administering and monitoring federal workforce development laws.
