Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Local Plan
Employ Milwaukee, the workforce development board serving Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, develops and executes a comprehensive 4-year WIOA Local Plan as required by US DOL.

- The needs of business and workers drive workforce solutions;
- Job Centers provide excellent customer service to all jobseekers and businesses;
- Strong regional economies are supported; and
- The local board’s vision and goals reinforce the priorities of the state workforce system.
