State Workforce Plan

Every four years, the US Department of Labor engages states nationally to submit a workforce plan. The Healey-Driscoll Administration is using this as an opportunity to outline a workforce plan including a vision, goals, and cross-secretariat collaboration. Starting January 29, 2024, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development will accept public comments on the draft plan. The public comment period will end on February 12, 2024.
