Lowcountry Workforce Development
The Workforce Development division of LCOG focuses on growing the regional economy by providing a skilled workforce to existing and new businesses. Funded primarily through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), it provides services to both employers and job seekers. Lowcountry WIA (LWIA) services are designed and governed by the Lowcountry Workforce Investment Board (LWIB), which is representative of the four counties, government agencies, education and local businesses. The LWIB maintains a business majority and is chaired by business representatives.
Lowcountry WIA is a strong and vital economic development tool that benefits local businesses and job seekers at all levels. Working in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce, LWIA staff are located at regional SC Works centers providing direct client services and support. The program administrative office is at LCOG.
