Regional Workforce Investment Board
The Regional Workforce Investment Boards were also created by the legislation to give communities direct input and decision making ability to address local workforce-related priorities. The boards work closely with Iowa Workforce Development and the Iowa Workforce Development Board to create a system to help Iowans respond to the rapid changes occurring in today's workplace.
The boards's responsibilities include identifying local workforce development needs, assisting in the award of local service provider contracts and monitoring their performance and providing an annual report and recommendations to the Iowa Workforce Development Board.
