Below are Regional Labor Market Blueprints representing industry and occupational priorities for workforce investment in seven regions across the Commonwealth: Berkshire, Pioneer Valley, Central, Southeast, Cape, Greater Boston, and Northeast. 

Who developed the blueprints? The blueprints were developed throughout a comprehensive year-long planning process that involved local, regional, and state leadership from workforce development, education, and economic development, and input from business and community stakeholders. The blueprints were updated in 2020, and updates are posted in the regional sections below.

How should these blueprints be used? Regional labor market blueprints should be used to inform policy, practice, and funding decisions on a state and local level. For example, a joint application for funding related to workforce development should reflect alignment to the priorities articulated in the blueprints.

How do I become more involved in regional team work? Contact information for regional teams is listed below.

Where can I find a summary of the regional priorities? A summary of updates made to regional plans in 2020 can be found by downloading this Blueprint Update Summary Matrix.
