A lot is happening at the Federal level.
There is good news that the House Labor-Health and Human Services Appropriations Committee is proposing a $23 million increase to WIOA Title II. This amount would bring Title II funding to the authorized level in the WIOA legislation. In addition, $7 million was added by the committee chair, Representative DeLauro, bringing the total amount to $672 million. This is an all-time high.
Now is the time for you to reach out to your elected officials and let them know to support this funding.
