Detroit Regional Workforce Fund
Why it matters
Michigan’s recovery and long-term prosperity hinges on having a skilled workforce that can meet the needs of employers in our changing economy.
What we're doing
The Detroit Regional Workforce Fund is a regional public/private collaborative that supports partnerships among employers and workforce development entities, effects change in the region’s strategic workforce vision and aligns public and private resources around the issue of workforce development.
In addition to financial support from United Way for Southeastern Michigan and the collaborative’s investors, the Fund has access to the resources of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions and its network of organizations around the country.
The Detroit Regional Workforce Fund envisions a healthy community that creates the conditions for financial stability of all residents and the economic vitality of businesses in Detroit and Southeastern Michigan. Key to this vision is a competitive core city workforce that connects to and propels economic growth in the state and region.
