Focus AreaThe Texas Workforce The Commission has allocated $1 million in WIOA Statewide (SW) funds to identify and develop local community training programs in rural areas, in collaboration with city or municipal partners. The overarching goal is to empower these communities with tailored training solutions that address their unique workforce challenges and opportunities. Local Workforce Development Boards (Boards) will use the funds to create training programs in their communities. This initiative aims to establish and fund Training Labs. These Labs are designed as turnkey training opportunities for rural jobseekers. They are created in partnership with local governments, community colleges, and other training providers. The aim is to create training programs that fit the needs of rural communities.
