Unified State Plan Public Comment Opportunity
Michigan submits a Unified State Plan. The plan and two-year mid-cycle modification must meet the requirements described in the WIOA and other published federal guidance. The plan outlines the strategy for the following:
Vocational Rehabilitation Program (Title I of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by Title IV).
Mid-cycle modifications are required at the end of the first two-year period of any four-year Unified State Plan. Modifications shall reflect changes in labor market and economic conditions, or in other factors affecting the implementation of the Unified State Plan, including proposed performance levels.
The 2022 Michigan Unified State Plan mid-cycle modification was submitted for final approval to the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) and the United States Department of Education on March 2, 2022. However, proposed performance levels for Program Years 2022 and 2023 for WIOA Titles I-IV were not available at the time of the initial posting of the draft mid-cycle modification for public comment in January of 2022. These proposed levels are now available and must be posted for public comment and review. This notification satisfies the requirement of a public comment and review period.
The Unified State Plan proposed performance levels are posted on the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, Workforce Development Data and Public Notices website HERE under State Plans and Required Reports until 5:00 p.m. on April 27, 2022. All comments regarding the proposed performance levels should be submitted to:
Voni Booyinga, WIOA Departmental Specialist
State of Michigan, Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity
201 North Washington Square, 4th Floor
Lansing, Michigan 48913
In an effort to make this as inclusive of a process as possible, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity respectfully requests you share the availability of this public comment opportunity with key stakeholders in your local area including, but not limited to, chief local elected officials, local workforce board members, One-Stop partners, service providers, other community and faith-based organizations that are part of your referral network, and employers.
To ensure your comments are considered, they must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on April 27, 2022.
