Southeastern Workforce Development Board

The Southeastern Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, also known as the SE WI WDB, was formed to provide oversight, guidance, and direction for the Federal Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) in a three county region known as a Workforce Development Area (WDA). These three Counties include, Kenosha, Racine, & Walworth Counties. The State of Wisconsin has eleven WDA’s and the SE WI WDB is known as WDA 1.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Workforce Development Board (SE WI WDB) updated Program Year 2020-2023 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Plan. The plan identifies strategic goals for the Southeastern Workforce Delivery Area and describes services and activities available to eligible adults, youth, dislocated workers, businesses and economic development partners through the American Job Centers/Workforce Development System in the three county area: Walworth, Racine and Kenosha counties. The plan is for the period of July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2023.
