WIOA Regional Plan

The South Central Workforce Development Planning Region, comprised of SCPa Works and the Lancaster County Workforce Development Board, have released a draft version of the PY 2017- 2018 WIOA Multi-Year Regional Plan that outlines a strategic vision for the region’s workforce initiatives.
