The Regional Workforce Plan for the West Central Economic Development Region 10
A regional plan is required to meet the purpose of developing, aligning, and integrating service delivery strategies for the partners included in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and supporting the state’s vision and strategic and operational goals. WIOA requires the WIB, in partnership with the chief elected official(s), to submit a plan to the Governor. The Workforce Innovation Board of Western Illinois has the responsibility of setting and implementing the strategic priorities to achieve the goals in this plan.
