Mississippi Submits Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Plan Update

News: November, 2018

Download MS 2018 WIOA Plan

Mississippi recently updated its Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) plan, which was the first plan of its kind to be submitted to and approved by the U.S. Department of Labor in 2015.

The revised plan outlines an innovative apprenticeship program under the Mississippi Apprenticeship Council. This program will connect apprenticeships to career and technical education training programs within the state's community college system. Essentially, the program will allow apprentices to receive both college credit hours and wages for their training. This new development ties into Mississippi’s goal of offering "reverse apprenticeships," which will let workers retroactively receive college credit for their skills and work experience.

Another important aspect of the updated WIOA plan is its strategic early learning component. Under this strategy, families with young children (ages 0-5) can receive not only high-quality child care but also the full range of services ensured by the WIOA plan. This new component highlights Mississippi's innovative multi-generational approach to education, benefits, and workforce training.

Mississippi’s revised plan has been approved by DOL.
