The Deep East Texas Local Workforce Development Board, d.b.a. Workforce Solutions Deep East Texas, has posted its DRAFT version of the Two-Year Plan Modification to the Board Plan for Program Years 2021-2024. The Public is invited to review and submit comments. Click here to view the draft plan.

The process for plan development included communication and collaboration with stakeholders, as well as data gathering and analysis. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that Boards set priorities for and oversee the local workforce development area (workforce area) in their region. WIOA requires that at the end of the first two-year period of the four-year local Board plans, Boards and their appropriate chief elected officials (CEOs) review their local plans and develop and submit modifications to reflect labor market changes, economic conditions, and other factors affecting plan implementation. These factors may include, but are not limited to, changes to the financing available to support WIOA Title I and partner-provided services or a need to revise strategies in order to meet local performance goals. Boards have until March 1, 2023, to submit modifications to their plan that promotes communication, coordination, and collaboration among partners, employers, economic development organizations, community-based partners, and other service providers that support the economic growth of the workforce area while meeting the needs of employers and job seekers. The plan identifies and describes policies and procedures as well as local activities that are in line with the State Plan. The Board reviewed and revised lists of in-demand industries, in-demand occupations, and target occupations.

This Board Plan was developed openly and is available to the public for comment until February 6, 2023.
