Worksystems Prepares for Stimulus Money

In anticipation of receiving federal stimulus money in the next few weeks, Worksystems is adopting the following principles to guide these investments:

1. Ensure that equity is considered in implementation plans;

2. Ensure a transparent and accountable process for spending resources;

3. Focus investments on preparing individuals for quality jobs;

4. Develop and expand regional partnerships that implement sectoral employment strategies;

5. Target, coordinate and align workforce investments;

6. Use the existing publicly funded regional WorkSource system as the mechanism for delivery of workforce development programs and services;

Thank you to Green for All and PolicyLink for providing the framework for these principles.
