Mountain Area Workforce Development


The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires each Local Area Workforce Development Board (WDB) to develop and submit, in partnership with the chief local elected official. The annual plan updates this year were submitted in May 2023. A comprehensive four-year plan will be submitted May 2024.

 In North Carolina, annually, each Local Area WDB, in consultation with the chief local elected official, is to provide updates to the Comprehensive Four-Year Plan. The WIOA Program Year (PY) 2023 Plan is to provide current information and be effective July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024, and will include required current local policies. The Local Area Plan will support the alignment strategy described in the 2020-2024 NC Unified State Plan in accordance with WIOA Section 102(b)(1)(E), and otherwise be consistent with the NC Unified State Plan. 

The public comment on the plan will be taken for 30 days until June 3, 2023.

The Business Accelerator Grant Application Round is CLOSED for the 2022 Program Year.   Please refer back to the website in July 2023 or contact Barbara Darby at barbarad@landofsky.org or 828-231-6611.

The Business Accelerator Grant for Incumbent Worker Training is a competitive, cost reimbursement training grant through which qualifying businesses can address employees’ skills gaps.  These skills gaps can be a result of a worker's changing responsibilities/requirements in her/his job, or for a worker whose job may potentially be eliminated, and skill upgrading is needed to accept new responsibilities.  Incumbent worker (IW) training should increase the knowledge, skills, and/or certifications of workers, and increase the competitiveness of the employee and the employer.
