A Local Workforce Development Board (Board) is a group of community leaders appointed by local elected officials (County Judges and City Mayors) and charged with planning and oversight responsibilities for workforce programs and services in their area. In Texas, twenty-eight Local Boards operate over 180 Local Workforce Solutions offices and are also responsible for:

  • Developing local plans for the use of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funds
  • Oversight of the local service delivery system
  • Coordinating activities with economic development entities and employers in their local areas

The majority of each Board is represented by members of the local business community. In all, Board membership includes individuals representing business and industry, economic development agencies, community-based organizations, education, organized labor, public assistance agencies and more.
