Workforce Investment Program

KeepingBrowardWorking.pngThe Broward County Board of County Commissioners has instituted the "Broward County Workforce Investment Program" to encourage local economic development through the hiring of economically disadvantaged or hard-to-hire individuals. Through the program, contractors are encouraged to work with CareerSource Broward as a first source for the recruitment and possible employment of employees for work on County-funded projects. Projects covered under this program are at least $500,000 in annual payments.
