Webinar - From the Ground Up: Creating Partnerships Between Public Housing Authorities and Workforce Investment Boards

From the Ground Up: Creating Partnerships Between Public Housing Authorities and Workforce Investment Boards

This webinar is geared towards management and front-line workforce and housing authority staff to understand one another's work and the benefits of partnerships. Assisting public housing residents on the path towards self-sufficiency often requires overcoming barriers to employment, such as limited education or job skills. The webinar presents information on how Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) can work together to overcome these challenges. Hear local examples of how partnerships between WIBs and PHAs can increase employment and create mutual benefit for both agencies.  In addition, the Secretaries of Labor and HUD will kick-off the event with a very special message – You won’t want to miss this exciting event!
