The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act is federally funded legislation passed in 2014 to assist Adults, Dislocated Workers, and Youth to prepare for the job market or re-entry into the job market. The funding comes from the United States Department of Labor to the state level through the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development and then is distributed to the thirteen local workforce development areas throughout Tennessee. We are Local Workforce Development Area 6 and cover 7 counties in Middle Tennessee.
The 30 member Local Workforce Development Board, comprised of representatives of mandated public sector partners and private sector representatives is the governing body for LWDA 6. The private sector representation must make up at least 51% of the local board.
Our administrative entity is Workforce Solutions, with the chief elected officials in our 6 counties having the oversight of our local area.
We are also a part of the American Job Center which includes several other partners that deliver services as part of the One-Stop concept. We have offices located in Bedford, Coffee, Franklin and Warren County.
We provide assistance in the form of Career Services to adults, dislocated workers, and youth. These three classifications of our population all have their own criteria for eligibility to receive assistance.
I hope you will take time to explore our webite to better understand our program and all it has to offer the job seekers and employers in the 6 counties we serve in Middle Tennessee.
