Minneapolis Employment and Training 

Minneapolis Employment and Training administers a variety of employment and training programs under the direction of the Mayor, City Council, and Minneapolis Workforce Council. Minneapolis Employment and Training is the administrative entity/staff to the Minneapolis Workforce Council. City programs under the oversight of the Workforce Council include services for low-income adults, dislocated workers, and youth. In Minneapolis, these services are delivered to job seekers and businesses by community-based organizations which have been competitively evaluated and selected based on their ability to effectively serve target groups and achieve employment-related outcomes, including both placement and support for retention in employment.

Public Comment Period: Minneapolis Workforce Development Board 2016 Local Unified Plan

The Minneapolis Workforce Development Board posts its 2016 & 2017 Local Plan for Public Comment.

The public comment period is open for 30 days beginning Friday, May 13 and closing Monday, June 13.
Please send any comments to Matthew Courtney.

The plan will also have a regional component which will be posted on the Greater Metropolitan Workforce Council website.

Each local Workforce Development Board is required to submit a plan which needs to align with the strategic vision set by the Governor, address the local needs of the workforce and business communities and comply with planning requirements as determined by the State of Minnesota’s Department of Employment and Economic Development, the U.S. Department of Labor and applicable federal and state statutes.

The plan itself covers a range of topics including strategic, program and system operations.

The regional plan for the Minneapolis-St Paul workforce development boards is posted on the Greater Metropolitan Workforce Council website. The Regional WIOA plan will be submitted as a component of the local plan. We invite you to read the plan here and submit comments to Maureen Ramirez
