The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is A new federal law that is shaping transition and employment services for individuals with disabilities around the country, including Wisconsin. On Jan. 12, 2017, InControl Wisconsin held a webinar to share information about this law and how it affects you or the people you work with.
