This Pathway to Recovery Quick Start Action Planner (QSAP) can be used by the public workforce system to aid in planning and preparing for economic recovery.

Now more than ever, the public workforce system can deliver critical support to job seekers and businesses across the country. This QSAP aims to assist states as they create and implement economic recovery plans. Designed to help states assess critical areas and strategies for recovery, this tool should be used across Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) partners and state agencies. The elements in the QSAP are derived from recent research and state reports and presentations in the following areas: Staffing, Technology, System Infrastructure and Capacity, Communication, and Funding.

Each state is encouraged to use this QSAP as a guide and add additional elements that reflect the unique characteristics of the state. Additional recovery resources can be found on the Pathway to Recovery Resources on WorkforceGPS.
