Workforce Investment Partners

Business partners collaborating

Under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, Region 5 partners joined forces to create and operate a regional workforce development center system. The goal of this system is to provide better customer service, choice and opportunity by integrating products and services.

The Local Elected Officials and the Regional Workforce Investment Board have the responsibility for the oversight of the center system.
