Combined State Plan Modification
On March 21, 2017, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) approved a draft of modifications to the Combined State Plan for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) covering Program Years 2016–2019, for posting for public comment.
Senate Bill 208, 84th Texas Legislature (Regular Session), which transferred the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services to the Texas Workforce Commission, effective September 1, 2016, requires Rehabilitative Services and Blind Services to merge into one division. This WIOA Combined State Plan Modification includes a new VR Plan that addresses all of the required elements for both general rehabilitative and blind services.
Additionally, on January 30, 2017, the governor approved the redesignation of the Alamo and Coastal Bend workforce development areas, moving McMullen County from Coastal Bend to Alamo. This WIOA Combined State Plan Modification includes an explanation of this redesignation, as well as an updated map showing the 28 workforce development areas in Texas.
TWC welcomes and invites input on these modifications. All comments must be submitted by Friday, April 21, 2017, at 5:00 p.m., and may be:
