Workforce Development Board

The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides funds that support the programs and activities of North Carolina’s Workforce Development Boards (WDB). North Carolina’s WDBs are partnered with the North Carolina Division of Workforce Solutions (a division of the Department of Commerce) which is designated by the Governor to be the state administrative entity that receives funds under the federal WIOA. The program offers opportunities for adults, veterans, and youth. Through the work at the local WDB level, we help employers find the qualified talent they need to ensure their business prospers.

As one of twenty-three Workforce Development Boards located throughout North Carolina, the Cumberland County Workforce Development Board helps individuals and businesses within our region gain access to the programs and services that connect talent to jobs. Our offerings are multi-faceted and we collaborate with a multitude of businesses, educational and training institutions, community agencies, as well as regional and state government representatives.

The Cumberland County Workforce Development Board is made up of a group of business and community leaders appointed by the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners.
