Larimer Area Local Plan is available for public comment.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires the submission of a four-year plan outlining the workforce development strategy for the Larimer Area.  The plan was drafted in consultation with the Workforce Development Board and our core WIOA partners.  WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.  The  annual plan serves as the main planning document for WIOA funded programs operated by Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development.

We welcome your comments.

You can go ahead and do it now if you choose, or you can wait until you are required to do so.
