The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014 calls for an integrated and coordinated service delivery system that leverages and maximizes resources.  To manifest its mission as a local area workforce board, CWMWDB offers an integrated diaspora of layered local services to individuals and businesses.  Formulated with efficient intention and maintaining the strictest of transparency standards, open meetings and budgeting, the CWMWDB dedicates itself to the highest and best use of the American tax payer’s funds.
