GRADDOWENSBORO, Ky. (9/18/13) – The Green River Workforce Investment Board (WIB) Local Plan for program years 2013-2014 is now available for public review and comment.

All local WIBs are required to submit comprehensive action plans to the Kentucky Department of Workforce Investment’s Office of Employment and Training (OET) in order to receive funding under the federal Work Investment Act (WIA).

They partner with the local elected officials of Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster counties and with the GRADD Board of Directors to improve the area’s employment and training system, with the goal of enhancing the quality of the workforce.

To review the plan, please visit www.GRADD.com/WIBplan, contact Peggy Willis at (270) 926-4433, or stop in the GRADD Office (300 GRADD Way, Owensboro) Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., by Oct. 18.
