OCTAE Program Memorandum 24-2: WIOA State Plan Guidance

On October 31, 2023, the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education released Program Memo 24-2: Requirements for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) State Plans for Program Years (PY) 2024-2027. This policy guidance, developed jointly by the U.S. Departments of Education and Labor, describes the Administration’s priorities, State Plan requirements, submission process, and deadline for the WIOA Unified and Combined State Plans for PYs 2024-2027, consistent with WIOA sections 102 and 103.

In accordance with WIOA, its implementing regulations, and the WIOA Unified and Combined State Plan Requirements information collection request, states must submit a four-year Unified or Combined WIOA State Plan covering PYs 2024-2027. States must submit plans by March 4, 2024, using the WIOA State Plan Portal. Once submitted, the Departments will review and provide a decision within 90 days for the core programs. 

We encourage you to review and share this guidance with all interested stakeholders.
