About the Office:
The Technical College System of Georgia, Office of Workforce Development manages the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA is a federal program that was signed into law in July 2014, and went into effect in Georgia in July 2015. WIOA is the nation’s principal workforce development legislation, providing funds to address the employment and training needs of dislocated workers, low-income adults and youth to ultimately help Georgia businesses meet the needs of today and the future. The Governor has appointed the State Workforce Development Board (SWDB) to administer WIOA funds and designated Office of Workforce Development as staff to SWDB, assisting in the regulation of WIOA funds which are administered throughout 19 Local Workforce Development Areas across the state.
The Workforce Division administers WIOA funds and oversees the state’s workforce development initiatives.
