Announces New Organization StructureWIOA changes implemented
Since the Workforce Innovation and
Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed last year, ACL has been working through the
process of moving the National Institute for Disability, Independent Living, and
Rehabilitation Research, and the independent living, and assistive technology
programs from the Department of Education to ACL.
Today, we celebrate a key milestone -- the
announcement of an updated organization structure that reflects and supports our
combined mission. This morning, our new Statement of Organization, Functions,
and Delegations of Authority was published in the Federal Register, which means
we now can share the details with our networks.
Our new structure formally incorporates the
WIOA programs and better aligns similar functions. We also have changed the
names of some offices and centers to better fit what those groups do.
