Public Comment Open on WIOA Waiver



Public comment open on WIOA Waiver


A 30 day public comment period has opened on behalf of the Alabama Department of Commerce, Workforce Development Division. The Workforce Development Division has developed a Two-Prong Career Pathway Model under the Pre-K to Workforce prong to address the educational and training requirements for high-demand, fast-growing and high-earning occupations. In order to address the skills gap, Alabama Workforce Board is requesting a WIOA Waiver to allow for Individual Training Accounts (ITA’s) for in-school youth participants ages 14-21 years of age.


This waiver will allow the youth population ages 14-21 years of age an opportunity to study career pathways and in-demand occupations, increase training and employment opportunities for this population of youth and empower youth to make their own decisions.
