State Workforce Investment Board
Mississippi's State Workforce Investment Board is created pursuant to MS Code Section 37-153-7 and the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to serve as an advisory board to the Office of Workforce Development (i.e. AccelerateMS), to monitor publicly-funded workforce development programs, and to recommend strategies and policies that enhance coordination among programs and activities towards continuous improvement of Mississippi's complex workforce development system.
The Mississippi State Workforce Investment Board is seeking public comments on Mississippi’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Combined Plan (State Plan) for Program Years (PY) 2024-27.

Local Workforce Development Boards are encouraged to engage and coordinate with their regional and local planning partners to review the State Plan and submit comments for the following documents:
Written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. PT on Friday, February 23, 2024, and must be submitted by email to loading...
