The Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board (WDB) provides oversight of the career centers, youth services and employment and training activities funded by the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act. The board also selects and approves providers for employee training, develops relationships with economic development and employer communities, promotes private sector involvement in the workforce investment system and advises local education and training providers.
The Kentucky Workforce Investment Board (KWIB) certified the Lincoln Trail WIB as a High-Impact WIB in 2013. High-Impact status recognizes efficiency, effectiveness and innovation in workforce development. Lincoln Trail was one of the first boards in Kentucky to achieve the certification. High-Impact boards receive preferred status for state discretionary fund allocations during the two-year life of the certification.
The members of the board include representatives from the eight counties of the Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Area.
