Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) in accordance with the WIOA Sections 102(c)(3) and 20 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 376.130, 34 CFR 361.135, and 34 CFR 463.135, the State of Colorado is providing an opportunity for public comment on, and input into the 2024-2027 WIOA Combined State Plan.
Every four years, Colorado is required to submit a WIOA State Plan outlining what the State is doing to help its residents, including youth and those who have been traditionally excluded, find high-quality jobs and careers. The plan also details how the State will help employers hire and retain skilled workers.
The draft new plan will be available for the public comment period from Nov. 3, through Dec. 4, 2023. Learn more about the state's strategies with our slide deck.
Following the public comment period, the CWDC will share responses to comments on the website. The 2024-2027 WIOA State Plan will be submitted to the United States Department of Labor by the beginning of March.
All comments regarding the proposed plan should be submitted via the WIOA State Plan public comment form or at one of our Town Hall Meetings:
- Wednesday, Nov. 8 from 3 to 4 p.m. (virtual) - Register for 11/8
- Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (in-person at CDLE, 633 17th Street, Denver, CO 80202, room 12A) - Register for 11/14
