The American Library Association (ALA) filed comments with the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA) to the Departments of Labor and Education on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The comments are now available for review (pdf).
America’s libraries are well positioned to play an essential role in this country’s efforts to assist the workforce. For the first time, libraries will be considered eligible training partners; non-mandatory one-stop partners; models for digital technology; adult education providers and leadership-training grant recipients.
Please continue to follow updates through our District Dispatch. We hope funds will become available soon.
