Creating Your Account in the WIOA State Plan Portal (New Accounts)

Print this page

Creating an account and requesting roles and access are separate steps in the WIOA SPP as of November 2021.

If you are an employee with an approved government agency email address and you have never logged into the WIOA State Plan Portal before, you can create your own account, confirm your account via email, and set up your password. If you've already logged into the portal, follow these steps instead to reset your password.

After your account has been successfully created, you will login to the portal and request access to the necessary programs and plans as a state or federal employee to do your job.

Each step in this process will require details about the kind of access you need.

Scroll here to follow the steps to create a new account and request access and roles.
