Workforce Area 15 - Policy Page

Ohio WIOA15 Workforce Development Board sets workforce policy for the area.  Some policies are local only and start with OVER; whereas other policies start at the state, these begin with WIOA.  For these policies, start by reading the State policy at:  State Policy and Guidance Information | Office of Workforce Development | Ohio Department of Job and Family Services then our local decision points are contained in below policy of same name.  Not all state policies require local decisions.   This method was designed to provide the reader the full and current version of both state and local policies while clearly showing the local customizations.
