Communities that Work Partnership


The U.S. EDA and the Aspen Institute launched the “Communities that Work Partnership” to accelerate industry-led workforce development and training efforts. The partnership will competitively select six teams around the country comprised of leaders in industry, government, education, workforce and economic development. These teams will receive technical assistance and participate in leadership development activities to strengthen regional skills development strategies that meet both business’ and workers’ needs.
