Local Strategic Plan

The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that local workforce development boards submit a strategic local workforce plan that reflects the vision, strategy, and goals of the State Strategic Workforce Development Plan. 

NOVA's plan is a comprehensive document that describes NOVA's vision for engaging key partners to effectively meet the rapidly changing needs of businesses and job seekers in a highly competitive and global economy.
