The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires local workforce development boards (LWDBs) to develop and submit, in partnership with the chief local elected official (CLEO), a comprehensive four-year plan to the State of Georgia. The Local Plan reflects the current and future strategies and efficiencies that the WorkSource Atlanta Board will use to address the continuing modernization of the City’s public workforce system and creation of a customer-centered system: where the needs of businesses and job seekers drive workforce solutions; where One-Stop Career Centers provide excellent customer service; and where the workforce system supports strong regional economies, as well as alignment with updated State and local priorities.
