In a rare sign of bipartisanship support for human services and human development, a reauthorized Workforce Investment Act passed by an incredible majority of 415-6 in the House of Representatives, and by an overwhelming margin in the Senate, 95-3. The job training bill, renamed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, includes provisions focused on supporting disconnected and opportunity youth, and it also continues support for programs including YouthBuild. Employment is just one piece of the puzzle for ensuring that families are financially secure, and the National Human Services Assembly and many of its members have turned their focus to ensuring all families have the opportunities for education, job readiness, work supports, and asset building. As such, the passage of WIOA was met with high praise and excitement by those in the human services and human development field.
