The Greater Lincoln Workforce Development Board is preparing local and regional plan two-year revisions for the period of July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2025. The local plan covers the workforce area of Lancaster and Saunders counties and the regional plan is state-wide. This plan meets the requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act by establishing local and regional strategies for directing investment in economic, education, and workforce training programs that result in individuals acquiring skills to compete in the job market and employers having a ready supply of skilled workers.

A public hearing will be held on March 21, 2023 at 1:00pm at the American Job Center, 1330 N Street, Suite A, Waverly Training Room, Lincoln, NE 68508. The plan will be continually updated until expiration of the 14 day comment period on April 3, 2023.

A draft for the local and regional plan is available for review:

Written comments on the plan should be sent to Sherla Post, Chairperson of the Greater Lincoln Workforce Development Board, at the American Job Center address listed or may be sent via email to Dylan Wren, Workforce Administrator at
