Final Report on Local-Level WIOA Implementation

SMRT (Strong Minds Rise Together) is pleased to offer their findings from the survey launched in May asking about local-level implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) around the nation. The 5-page executive summary can be accessed here. They received over 200 responses to complete this survey report, only local workforce development board representatives were included in this survey.

The Report Overview:

Local Workforce Development Boards face many challenges to implementing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). SMRT surveyed over 200 members from the community of local Workforce Development Boards to document the barriers they are facing. Our goal is to identify the obstacles, as well as some of the bright spots, in WIOA implementation to help local boards understand the experiences of their counterparts around the nation as they look to find innovative and effective solutions.
