Certified Counties

When a county achieves Work Ready Community status, it means they have a robust, public-private partnership driven approach to link education to workforce development, align to economic development and match people to jobs. Once a community is certified, that is just the beginning. Their next step is to build upon this foundation and further strengthen their workforce development efforts through the Maintaining ACT Work Ready Community efforts.
