WORKFORCE PLANS - 2017

Bluegrass Local Workforce Plan
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires each workforce development board (WDB) to develop and submit, in partnership with the local chief elected official, a comprehensive four-year plan to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. 

The Local Plan reflects the current and future strategies and efficiencies that the Workforce Development Board of the Bluegrass Area and other local areas will use to address the continuing modernization of the workforce system and creation of a customer-centered system: where the needs of employers and jobseekers drive workforce solutions; where One-Stop Career Centers provide excellent customer service to all jobseekers and businesses; and where the workforce system supports strong regional economies, as well as alignment with updated State and local priorities.
