LWDA 6 Workforce Board

Local workforce investment boards, in partnership with local elected officials, are responsible for planning and overseeing the local program. The board is responsible for developing the local plan to be submitted to the Governor for approval, designating local "One-Stop" operators, designating eligible providers of training services, negotiating local performance measures, and assisting in developing an employment statistics program.

 

A youth council is to be established in each local area as a subgroup of the local board. The youth council develops portions of the local plan relating to youth, recommends the providers of youth activities to be awarded grants by the local board, and coordinates youth activities in the area.

 

Members of local workforce investment boards are appointed by local elected officials in accordance with criteria established by the Governor.

 

Composition of workforce investment boards: Must have a majority of business representatives and include representatives of education providers, labor organizations, community- based organizations (including those representing disabled veterans), economic development agencies, and each of the "One- Stop" partners. It may include other representatives determined appropriated by local elected officials.

 

The board is prohibited from directly providing training services unless the Governor waives the prohibition based on a determination that another entity is not available to meet local demand for such training. The board may not directly provide non-training services unless the local elected official and the Governor agree to allow the board to provide such services.
