Los Angeles Basin Regional Planning Unit releases Regional Plan Modification for Public Review and Comment
The Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) of Los Angeles County are seeking public input on modifications to the region’s Workforce Development Plan. The Draft Modification to the Los Angeles Basin Regional Planning Unit Regional Workforce Development Plan 2017-2020 is open for public review and public comments through Friday, March 8, 2019
Background: The LA Basin Regional Planning Unit is comprised of seven local Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) including: City of Los Angeles WDB, County of Los Angeles WDB, Foothill WDB, Pacific Gateway (City of Long Beach) WDB, South Bay Workforce Investment Board, Southeast Los Angeles County WDB, and Verdugo WDB. The Four year Regional Workforce Development Plan is required under federal and state laws and is subject to the Governor’s approval. The Regional Plan Modification is specifically required to determine how the seven Workforce Development Boards plan to:
- Align, coordinate, and integrate reentry and workforce services to the formerly incarcerated and other justice-involved individuals;
- Comply with State Plan guidance and state law relating to Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3) pre-apprenticeship partnerships;
- Conduct a regional self-assessment using Indicators of Regional Coordination and Alignment to determine regional implementation progress in achieving the objectives of the California State Workforce Development Plan.
During the months of October through December 2018, an extensive stakeholder public input process was conducted within the City of Los Angeles and the six partner Workforce Development Board areas regarding the Regional Plan Modification and the Local Plans.
To make comments regarding the Regional Plan Modification, please email to lacitywibATlacity.org

Draft Regional Plan Modifications for Review
GLENDALE, CA -The Verdugo Workforce Development Board (VWDB) announced today that it released its draft Local Workforce Development Plan Modification 2019 document for public review and comment.
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.
