NKWIB WIOA Regional and Local Plan Available for Public Comment

The NKWIB WIOA Regional and Local Plan FY2022 - FY2025 is available for public comment.

According to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board has prepared the draft Northern Kentucky Workforce Development Area Regional and Local Plan. The Local Workforce Development Area Plan sets forth the strategy to:

  • Direct investments in economic, education, and workforce training programs to focus on providing relevant education and training to ensure that individuals, including youth and individuals with barriers to employment, have the skills to compete in the job market and that employers have a ready supply of skilled workers.
  • Apply job-driven strategies in the one-stop delivery system.
  • Enable economic, education, and workforce partners to build a skilled workforce through innovation in, and alignment of, employment, training, and education programs

The Regional plan should identify regional collaboration and innovation opportunities and incorporate priorities and opportunities identified within the Local Plan, guidance from final WIOA regulations, and feedback to Kentucky on its WIOA State Plan. The comprehensive Regional and Local Plan provides an in-depth look at the programs and activities within the NKWDA. Simultaneously, the NKWIB is working towards revising its strategic plan by summer 2021. The NKWIB strategic plan outlines the workforce development goals and objectives for the region.

The draft Regional and Local Plan can be reviewed here: https://nkcareercenter.org/plan2021/. The NKWIB will hold a virtual open meeting on April 20, 2021, at 10 am for public comment on the plan.
