The Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA) strengthens the ability of the nation’s public workforce system to align investments in workforce development, education and training, and economic development efforts with regional in-demand jobs. WIOA focuses on the importance of providing customers with access to high-quality One-Stop centers (known as the AJCCs) that connect customers with the full range of services available in their communities.
The purpose of the Master MOU is to provide a county-wide agreement that establishes a cooperative working relationship between Solano’s workforce development entities that receive federal workforce funding. By establishing an agreement between workforce entities to work effectively together, the County will ensure access to a high-quality AJCC in Solano that provides comprehensive and multi-faceted workforce services in the community for all customers.

2. Building of basic educational or occupational skills
3. Pathways to certificates or degrees, including secondary and postsecondary
4. Guidance on choosing and pursuing career pathways
5. Support in identifying, hiring, and advancing skilled workforce
This Master MOU is required to be approved by the WDB and the County prior to the establishment of guidelines regarding financial contributions between the WDB and the partners of the AJCC.
