About this grant

Passed by Congress in 1998, the federal Workforce Investment Act requires the establishment of business-led Workforce Investment Boards in local communities across the country. The purpose of the Workforce Investment Boards, of which there are approximately 600 nationally, is to oversee the expenditure of Workforce Investment Act funds and to design and implement local workforce development systems.This grant will enable the National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB) to finalize the design and begin the implementation of the first comprehensive technical assistance and capacity improvement program for Workforce Investment Boards across the country.NAWB supports and promotes the work of its members through a comprehensive program of advocacy, technical assistance and communications activities.
