Please share your comments about the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) Southwest Ohio Area 12 | Area 13 2021-2025 Regional Strategic Plan.
This plan is being developed as a partnership between the BCW|Workforce Area, operated by the Workforce Investment Board of Butler|Clermont|Warren and the Southwest Ohio Regional Workforce Investment Board of Hamilton County.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires local workforce development boards and their chief elected officials to create an integrated regional and local workforce plan for the Southwest Ohio region. The Southwest Ohio Workforce Development Region is a four-county workforce development planning region, with two local workforce development areas (WDAs): the Hamilton County WDA, and the Butler, Clermont, and Warren WDA. Two local workforce development boards (LWDB) oversee these local areas:
- Southwest Ohio Regional Workforce Investment Board (SWORWIB)
- Workforce Investment Board of Butler|Clermont|Warren (WIBBCW)
The attached plans serve as four-year action plans to develop, align, and integrate service delivery strategies that successfully connect the area’s businesses and workforce residents and, supports Ohio’s workforce-related vision, strategic and operational goals.
Consistent with WIOA, the local workforce development board must provide an opportunity for public comment on the development of the local plan before submitting the plan to the Governor.
The Southwest Ohio Workforce Region has posted its WIOA Multi-Year Regional and Local Strategic Plans (PY2021 – PY2024) will be available for a 30-day public comment period, from May 20, 2021 – June 19, 2021.
All comments on these planning documents should be submitted via email to Governance@BCWWorkforce.com, before June 20, 2021.
