Overview

Overview


In June 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 1507 into law, establishing the Reimagining Education and Career Help (REACH) Act. This innovative, system-wide approach to workforce development and education in Florida will create opportunities for meaningful employment and economic freedom for Floridians. DEO is coordinating on this important initiative with the REACH Office, the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Florida Department of Education, and CareerSource Florida.

The strategic alignment and coordination of education and workforce initiatives will include an online opportunity portal, allowing access to available state, federal, and local services and tools. This will provide Floridians with broader access to education and training options, labor market information, career planning tools, workforce training, and education support. Additionally, the REACH Act strengthens oversight, accountability, and transparency measures for the network of agencies, partners, and systems.

The Workforce System Integration effort is currently under way at DEO with the completion of a Feasibility Study. The study provides alternatives and recommendations to best establish a consumer-first workforce system and improve coordination among workforce partners, as envisioned by the REACH Act. Additionally, the study provides a roadmap for program establishment, technical integration, and enhanced business process integration. These initiatives will take place over three to five years and set a foundation for enhanced coordination and service delivery for Floridians.
