Greater Nebraska Local Regional Plan DRAFT
The Greater Nebraska Workforce Development Board is preparing a regional and local plan for the period July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2021.
This plan covers the local workforce area of 88 rural counties and the Tri-Cities regional area designated by the Governor as
Blaine, Garfield, Valley, Sherman, Howard, Merrick, Hamilton, Hall, Clay, Nuckolls, Webster, Franklin, Kearney, Adams, and Buffalo counties.
This plan will meet requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) by establishing local and regional strategies for
directing investments in economic, education and workforce training programs with the end results being individuals acquiring skills to
compete in the job market and employers having a ready supply of skilled workers.
Written comments on the plan should be sent to Lisa Wilson, Chairperson of the Greater Nebraska Workforce Development Board, at the Nebraska Department of Labor, 550 S. 16th Street, Lincoln, NE 68508 or by email to Dylan Wren, Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The WIOA Title I-financially assisted program is an equal opportunity program. Discrimination in the WIOA Title I-financially assisted program is prohibited by Federal law. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
