Virginia Combined State Plan (PY 2024-2027)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires states to submit a Unified or Combined State Plan that sets forth a vision for the workforce development system. Every four years, Virginia submits a Combined State Plan, which includes the six WIOA core programs and other workforce development programs. This Plan promotes a shared understanding of Virginia's workforce needs and fosters development of more comprehensive and integrated approaches, such as career pathways and sector strategies, for addressing the needs of businesses and workers.
