Monroe County/Rochester Workforce Development Board

Workforce Development Board

A Local Workforce Development Board (LWDB) represents every community in the United States. LWDBs are the foundation of workforce development systems statewide. In addition to providing skill-based programs through one-stop career centers, local boards develop strategic plans to match employers with qualified candidates. There are 33 LWDBs throughout New York.

The Monroe County/ Rochester WDB serves Rochester and Monroe County. Rochester’s mayor and county executive appoint board members. Federal law requires that a majority of the board members come from the business community to ensure that workforce initiatives align with economic development. In New York State, LWDBs typically have between 20 and 40 members.

Board Responsibilities

Determine the needs of the local job market as a guide for allocating workforce development resources.

Oversee the activities of the one-stop career centers, which assist unemployed job seekers, existing workers seeking better career paths, local businesses seeking new hires, and young adults entering the local workforce

Hire an Executive Director

Create policies for the WDB that govern the delivery and prioritization of workforce services in the region.

Adopt 4-year local and regional workforce development plans

Approve spending of WIOA and other Federal workforce funds
