Workforce Development Boards
In May, 1992 the Connecticut General Assembly
established nine Regional Workforce Development Boards in the state to conduct
comprehensive planning, and coordinate regional workforce development policy and
programs. With a regional focus, the Boards assess regional employment and
training needs and priorities, conduct planning for and coordinate programs that
address those needs. In addition, the Boards create annual employment and
training plans, and review regional grant proposals and plans submitted to state
agencies by other organizations to assure that all regional planning is
consistent with an overall statewide blueprint for workforce development. The
Boards, with the Connecticut Department of Labor, other State agencies and
private organizations, form a statewide partnership to achieve comprehensive
workforce development in the State.
