Central Region, Kentucky—Today, the Bluegrass, KentuckianaWorks, Lincoln Trail, and Northern Kentucky Workforce Areas are releasing the Central Kentucky WIOA Regional Plan (Regional Plan) for a 7-day public comment period. These plans outline the vision, goals and strategies for the 40 county’s WIOA programs, which are operated through a network of Kentucky Career Center and the America’s Job Centers of Kentucky. “This landmark Regional Plans unites diverse public and private partners throughout the Central Kentucky around a shared approach to develop a skilled and competitive workforce that meets the needs of businesses and employers,” said Mable Duke, Director of Workforce Services for the Bluegrass Local Workforce Area. The Regional Plan outlines a shared vision for four Workforce Development Boards, community colleges, adult schools, economic development organizations, labor organizations, nonprofits and other workforce partners located throughout Central Kentucky.

The Regional Plan was developed through a months-long collaborative process between Central Kentucky’s four Workforce Development Boards: Bluegrass, KentuckianaWorks, Lincoln Trail, and Northern Kentucky. Over the past several months, the four groups gathered critical input that informed the development of the Regional Plan and which will be further developed into each respective board’s local plan. As a part of the Region’s ongoing efforts to ensure community input and review the plan, the BGWIB seeks public input on or before Friday, June 16, 2017.
