|What is the Workforce Investment Act?|
The Workforce Investment Act was signed into law on August 7, 1998 as an effort to consolidate and streamline the nation's employment and training programs. It replaced the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) that had been in place since 1982.
"One-Stop" Centers serve as the cornerstone of the Workforce Investment System. These Centers unify training, education and employment programs into one customer-friendly system in each community. At least one full-service center is located in each workforce investment area.
