The Texas Workforce Commission has prepared a new Strategic State Workforce Investment Plan (plan) for the Title I Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and the Wagner-Peyser Act.
The Plan comprises three distinct sections:
- Section I details how the Texas workforce system will accomplish its mission through associated strategies and how Texas' workforce strategies align with the strategic direction of the Texas Workforce Investment Council.
- Section II includes responses to detailed operational questions-required by the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration-regarding state structure, funding, target populations, and service delivery efforts. This section also includes the Senior Community Service Employment Program State Plan for Program Years 2012-2015, and all applicable waivers.
- Section III provides a list of assurances affirming that key obligations in the law have been met.
The Commission approved the plan at its September 4, 2012, meeting, and it was endorsed by the Texas Workforce Investment Council at its September 7, 2012, quarterly meeting. The Governor of Texas approved the plan on September 12, 2012.
The U.S. Department of Labor approved the plan on December 11, 2012. The portions relating to Title I of WIA, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and Trade Adjustment Assistance are approved through June 30, 2017. The annual Wagner-Peyser Agricultural Plan is approved through June 30, 2013. The Senior Community Service Employment Program State Plan is approved through June 30, 2016.
