Program Year 2018 Modification to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Local Plan for the Period July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2020

Title I, Chapter 2, Section 108 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs), in partnership with Local Elected Officials (LEOs) develop and submit a comprehensive four-year local plan to the Governor which identifies and describes workforce development policies, procedures, and program activities that are to be carried out in the local area. The Greater Peninsula Local Workforce Development Area (LWDA) includes the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, and Williamsburg and the counties of Gloucester, James City, and York.

In accordance with this requirement, a comprehensive 4-year local plan was prepared for the period July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2020 by the Greater Peninsula Workforce Board (GPWB) and submitted to the WIOA Title I Administrator, Workforce Development Services Division, Virginia Community College System, in February 2017. Following a review by the Title I Administrator’s Office the plan was recommended for approval and subsequently approved by the Virginia Board of Workforce Development in June 2017. This plan is in the public record and remains available, upon request to the GPWB, for review.
