Foothill Workforce Development Board Draft Local Plan
On February 7, 2017, Foothill Workforce Development Board released its Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) Local Plan for a 30-day public comment period. The plan reflects input gathered over the course of the past several months from reviewing the new WIOA law, discussing our ideas and goals with our Workforce Development Board, Policy Board and partners. Our partners represent a broad cross-section of business, labor, economic development, educational, youth services providers and other stakeholders.
The Local Plan provides details FWDB and its local workforce development area intend to implement to meet the workforce needs of local businesses, job seekers, and individuals with barriers to employment. As a part of FWDB’s ongoing efforts to ensure community input and review, Foothill is seeking the public’s input. All comments must be submitted by Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
