Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Partner RFP- The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) is seeking to provide opportunities for the expansion and enhancement of existing educational programs and services for adults who lack the level of basic skills and literacy necessary to be effective parents, citizens and employees. CSDE is therefore seeking submission of written proposals, on a competitive basis to increase the capacity of Connecticut’s eligible providers to deliver the needed educational and support services to adult learners in the five workforce development areas.  Under the WIOA, the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act's purposes have been expanded to include assisting adults in their transition to postsecondary education and training, including through career pathway programs.  Further, the WIOA formalizes the role of adult education in assisting English language learners to acquire the skills needed to succeed in the 21st-century-economy.
