WIOA GUIDANCE 11-24-2014
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA), P.L. 113-128, transfers the Independent Living Services and Centers for Independent Living
programs funded under title VII, Chapter 1, of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Rehabilitation Act) from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA),
Department of Education, to the Administration for Community Living (ACL), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Technical Assistance to the
Independent Living (IL) programs, issued September 30, 2014
(Technical Assistance), explains that ACL is providing policy, legal, and programmatic direction throughout this transition.
As indicated in the Technical Assistance, a State Plan for Independent Living (SPIL) has already been approved in each State through fiscal year 2016.
To ensure the orderly transition of the IL programs to ACL, HHS will not require Designated State Entities, State Independent Living Councils or centers
for independent living to implement the new IL provisions of WIOA until such provisions have been incorporated into a SPIL.
A state may submit an amended SPIL to reflect the new WIOA requirements at any time. The new SPILs will be due no later than July 1, 2016, to ensure that
the state has an approved SPIL for the period beginning in fiscal year 2017. We strongly encourage stakeholders to take advantage of this time to proactively
engage in a collaborative strategic planning process with all interested parties around the development of a SPIL that incorporates the new WIOA provisions
and addresses the unique needs in each state. The Technical Assistance describes the process a State must follow if it chooses to amend its SPIL. In
addition, prior to submitting amended SPILs for approval, States must hold public hearings consistent with 34 CFR 364.20(g), including a minimum 30-day
Questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding WIOA implementation or the IL programs may be submitted to ACL at
wioa at acl.hhs.gov.
Grant-specific questions should be directed to the IL program staff at RSA assigned to the particular grant.
