FY10 State Plan - FY11 Extension

For Fiscal Year 2010 (FY10) states are required to submit a modification to the current two-year (FY08 - 09) State Plan for Workforce Investment Act and Wagner-Peyser Funding. This FY10 State Plan modification is a stand-alone document consisting of responses to specific questions from USDOL.

The modification was developed with input from the Commonwealth's workforce partners including the Department of Workforce Development, the Division of Career Services, Commonwealth Corporation, the Workforce Investment Association, the Massachusetts Workforce Board Association and those who attend the monthly Workforce Partners Meetings.
