Philanthropy has an opportunity to guide the planning and implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act in communities around the nation. So how do we get there?
In 2014, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law in order to provide greater access to employment, especially to those experiencing homelessness. The success of its implementation requires partnerships and collaboration from communities, government, and foundations alike.
In this webinar, we examine how employment and WIOA intersect with homelessness and what opportunities are present for philanthropy to ensure the planning and implementation of WIOA leads to better opportunities for employment.
