One Workforce Local Area Plan and Process
The Central Western Maine Workforce Development Board oversees WIOA Title1B employment and training funding and the One Workforce System in Androscoggin, Franklin, Kennebec, Oxford, and Somerset counties. Maine has three Local Workforce Areas and this area is sometimes called Region 3.
The Central Western Maine One Workforce Local Area Plan and process development serves as a collaborative and engaging method to create an actionable four-year action plan with expert economic forecasting. The One Workforce Local Area Plan will develop, align, and integrate service delivery strategies to support the State’s vision and strategic and operational goals. The local plan sets strategy to direct investments in economic, education, and workforce training programs to focus on providing relevant education and training to ensure individuals, including individuals with barriers to employment, have the skills to compete in the job market and employers have a ready supply of skilled workers.
