Business Services

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is designed to assist businesses in finding skilled workers and to enhance access to other important workforce services. WIOA provides opportunities for businesses to participate in training eligible youth and adults and provides connections to those who have received training from approved education and training providers. To learn more about our training programs, check out our WDB Business Services Flyer.
