In addition to strengthening the mandate to serve jobseekers facing barriers to employment, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) includes a comprehensive definition of the transitional jobs strategy and includes all components of transitional jobs programming as allowable uses of funds. This presentation, delivered at the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) 2015 Annual Conference, addresses the portions of the new law related to the transitional jobs strategy as well as other provisions related to better serving individuals facing barriers to employment, and offers recommendations for how workforce boards, service providers, and other stakeholders can respond to WIOA in ways that result in better outcomes for the chronically unemployed.
Comments to the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OSCE) on Proposed Rulemaking to Modernize and Increase the Flexibility and Efficiency of the Child Support ProgramJanuary 15, 2015
This document contains Heartland Alliance's comments to the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE), which has released a proposed regulation to modernize the child support program and increase its flexibility and efficiency in securing reliable support for families. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposes to update existing rules, some of which are 35 years old, and make changes that would help modernize the program. Heartland Alliance's comments to the proposed rule commend many of the needed changes proposed by OCSE. In particular, the rule permits much-needed job services for eligible noncustodial parents, vital changes to how orders are calculated, and improvements to the handling of orders while the noncustodial parent is incarcerated.
