Workforce Investment Act/Wagner-Peyser ES State Plan

The U.S. Department of Labor is requiring states to modify their existing state plans in order to provide updates to current strategies and new activities related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. As instructed in TEGL 14-08, the Commission submitted a request to extend the current state plan through June 30, 2010.

On June 2, 2009, DOL approved a one-year extension of the current WIA/ES State Plan (PDF).

In addition, the state plan will be modified for July 1, 2005 - June 30, 2010, to reflect changes in the Texas economy and the impact on the Texas workforce system, as well as the state strategy for ARRA funds. Public input was invited during the development of this modification and on May 19, the draft state plan modification was approved for public comment through May 29. The final plan was approved by the Commission on June 2 for submission to the Texas Workforce Investment Council for recommendation to the Governor and subsequent submission to the U.S. Department of Labor.
