The Trident Workforce Development area and the South Coast Region are seeking public comments on the two-year local and regional plan modifications. The plans must identify and describe the policies, procedures, and workforce activities carried out in the region and local areas.
Each Local Workforce Development Board (LWDB) is responsible for developing a four-year local plan in partnership with the chief elected officials (CEOs). The Local Workforce Development Board and CEOs must also engage in a regional planning process to develop a regional plan incorporating the local plans within the region. These plans must be updated after two years. The Trident Workforce Development area along with the Lowcountry Workforce Area makes up the South Coast Regions (Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton, and Jasper Counties).
The following documents are open for Public Review:
These two documents are available for public review and comment from November 14, 2022 to November 23, 2022 Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the:
