Reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act: Implications for Secondary Transition and Persons with Disabilities

November 07, 2014

Congress has reauthorized the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), including the Rehabilitation Act, through 2020 now titled "Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act" (WIOA). President Obama stated that the bill "will help workers, including workers with disabilities, access employment, education, job-driven training, and support services that give them the chance to advance their careers and secure the good jobs of the future." Please click here to access the Brief that describes the new WIOA legislation. 

NSTTAC’s Youth to Work Coalition (YTWC) will be hosting a webinar, led by Curtis Richards with the Institute for Educational Leadership, explaining the new WIOA on November 19 from 2-3 p.m.
