Background & Purpose

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (“WIOA”) mandates regional workforce planning as does the State of California. Each of the seven local Workforce Development Boards of the Los Angeles Basin has drafted a local plan for its specific workforce development activities. These local plans align with the regional plan and will be attached to the regional plan upon local WDB approvals.

The Local Workforce Development Plan for the Verdugo Workforce Development Area describes how the workforce development system will be implemented in the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, and La Cañada Flintridge. The Local Plan Modification will be implemented to assist the VWDB in meeting its vision of: “An economically vibrant, tri-city region with thriving businesses, youth and job-seekers on career paths that reflect their highest potential.” Funding for the workforce development system is primarily through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act administered by the United States Department of Labor.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act is an Equal Opportunity Program.
