CARSON CITY, NV – January 14, 2022
A new issue brief from the National Governors Association (NGA) issued earlier this week highlighted Nevada as one of a handful of states where Governors and state workforce system leaders are reconnecting workers to the labor force and to sustainable, high-quality jobs through new models of service delivery.
“Nevada is in the national spotlight because of the great work we’ve done in developing programs and policies to support and retrain our workforce,” said Governor Sisolak. “We will remain lasered focused on accelerating our State’s economic recovery, creating good-paying jobs, and helping get Nevadans back to work.”
The State of Nevada was one of 10 states in the inaugural cohort of the NGA Workforce Innovation Network (NGA WIN), which launched last year as a nonpartisan learning and action collaborative for state leaders who have demonstrated strong commitments to building a resilient workforce. The new issue brief is the product of months of collaboration with NGA Center staff and a network of subject matter experts to design, launch and scale innovations to state service delivery systems for job seekers.
While all 10 states participating in NGA WIN implemented a similar innovation design to identify and close gaps in job-seeker service delivery, each state carried out a unique initiative aligned with its Governor’s workforce and economic recovery goals. The new brief highlights the state objectives, activities and outcomes achieved during the grant period.
