Local Workforce Plan 2020-2024 (Draft for Public Comment)

The WIB administers specific functions of the public workforce system, both community-based services and at the region’s job centers in Joplin and Monett. Both state and federal grant sources require an Integrated Workforce System Operations Plan that governs the use of resources for the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the administration of the region’s job center locations. The local effort includes gathering trends and current initiatives to package with local policies designed to constantly improve the quality and efficiency of local workforce resources.

Per state and federal guidelines, the SW MO WIB published the region’s official WIOA Plan and related attachments below on February 4, 2020. The plan is in a thirty-day window for public comment. This window will close on March 5, 2020. Click here to ask questions or post comments about the local plan
