Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

WIOA and the ETPL

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. WIOA mandates each state maintain and publish an Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL). The ETPL represents eligible providers and programs that are approved to provide training services to participants who are determined to be eligible to receive WIOA Title I-B program funds. WIOA Title I-B Adults, Dislocated Workers, and Out-of-School Youth who are determined eligible for training services may choose any training program listed on the ETPL after consultation with his/her Arizona @ Work case manager.
