The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law on July 22, 2014. WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
WIOA calls for strong alignment between the partners and operators of programs throughout the workforce system. As designated in the legislation, the CWDC has primary responsibility for ensuring that alignment takes place through the coordination of the state plan and the development of strategies and guidance that promote the continuous improvement of Colorado's workforce system.
Take a moment to see what the Colorado public workforce system has accomplished since 2010.

WIOA Grant Funding
You may be eligible to receive financial aid through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program. Funding for education and skills training can vary from person to person or county to county, but you can explore all of your options to help you get back to work.
According to our most recent student exit survey provided to program students after graduation, Digital Workshop Center helped 82% of our unemployed or dislocated students to get back to work.
Some of those students were able to attend DWC classes through WIOA grants. Find out how WIOA could work for you too.
