Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

Access your high-quality career through educational scholarships.

Helping America Discover Job Opportunities

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act provides funding for many of the programs we offer here at Geaux Jobs. WIOA is a landmark act of legislation that was strategically designed to improve and strengthen America’s public workforce system. It helps to provide opportunities so all Americans can access high-quality jobs, including young adults and those who may face barriers to employment. WIOA also helps employers retain and hire high-quality workers for their company.
