Georgia County Government - Summer 2017 - 27

to ensure that the growing industries such
as manufacturing, healthcare, logistics
and construction are being supplied with
a skilled and trained workforce to support
business growth on the regional and local
levels. We encourage local governments
and counties to partner with LWDAs in
this effort. Another opportunity that we
are excited to announce is the establishment of HDCI Sector Partnerships. The
State has implemented a $3 million grant
program to help support the development
of sector partnerships throughout Georgia.
Each region is focused on a high-demand
industry and the workforce needs within
that industry. County and local government
representation is critical to the success of
these sector partnerships.

Local Workforce Development Boards
are business-led and appointed by chief
local elected officials. This group ensures
that growing and in-demand industry partners play a major role in the partnerships
and decisions that support workforce
development. Some of these decisions
include: setting local policy, determining
where the career centers are located in
the region and ensuring that all of the partners are equally represented. Local government entities are vital partners in deploying
workforce development programs throughout the state. They serve as conveners for
initiatives such as sector partnerships, and851396_Moreland.indd 1
