The Agency for Workforce Innovation

  The Agency for Workforce Innovation is Florida’s lead state workforce
  agency, directly administering the state’s Unemployment Compensation,
  Workforce Development Services and Early Learning programs. The
  Office of Early Learning is a division within the Agency, providing
  oversight of Florida’s school readiness programs, and is the lead entity for
  implementing the state’s successful Voluntary Prekindergarten program.

  Led by our Governor, the Agency for Workforce Innovation serves the
  people of Florida by working to support families and ensuring children
  have quality early learning opportunities. The Agency’s goal for Florida is
  Children ready to learn, families ready to earn. The Agency houses three critical
  divisions—or business lines—that provide services to Florida’s families
  and children:
Unemployment Compensation

   Unemployment Compensation—Through the
  unemployment insurance program, the Agency provides
  temporary wage replacement benefits to Floridians who have
  lost their jobs through no fault of their own. In the
  Unemployment Compensation office, we resolve disputed
  unemployment compensation claims and tax liability protests.
  This division also reviews claims, benefit payments, and
  warrants as well as responds to calls from claimants,
  employers, and other Floridians. Additionally, this division
  bears responsibility for detecting and preventing
  unemployment fraud and overpayments.
Workforce Services

 Workforce Services—The Agency for Workforce Innovation
 is the Governor’s agency for disbursement of federal
 workforce funds. Through our Workforce Services office, we
 administer many programs that help the employed, as well as
 the unemployed and the underemployed. This division is
 responsible for providing One-Stop Program Support services
 (workforce program information, guidance and technical
 assistance) to the Regional Workforce Boards, as well as
 providing Labor Market Statistics information to our
 workforce partners and the general public. Additionally, the
 Agency is the administrative entity to Workforce Florida, Inc.,
 and works closely with Workforce Florida, Inc. to administer
 workforce programs across the state.
Early Learning

   Early Learning—The Agency’s Office of Early Learning is
   responsible for implementation of the state’s Child Care
   Resource and Referral, School Readiness, and Voluntary
   Prekindergarten programs. These programs support families
   as they seek employment or work by paying for child care
   services so they can work. The Voluntary Prekindergarten
   program is free for the state’s four-year-old children. This
   high quality program prepares children to be ready to learn
   when they enter kindergarten. The Agency works with 31
   local early learning coalitions to ensure services to families
   and children are available, accessible and affordable.
