Governor’s Workforce Board

Governor Carcieri signed the Governor’s Workforce Board of Rhode Island into effect in September of 2005. The 17-member board institutes statewide policies and guidelines that coordinate employment and training programs, employment-associated educational programs, and support strategies that increase and improve the current and future workforce. The board oversees all state and local workforce and education programs including those under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, the Wagner-Peyset Act, and the Family Support Act. In the past 18 months, the board has endowed more than $15 million worth of investments that has led to a collaboration of the state’s employment, education, and economic development sectors.
