National Workforce Investment Areas Map


W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research

Updated 2018


Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) are the backbone of the nation's workforce development system. Established by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and continued under the recently enacted Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), nearly 600 WIBs across the country administer the nation's reemployment services and job training programs and coordinate a host of other services through their service centers to assist people in finding jobs.


The Upjohn Institute has compiled an interactive map containing all of the nation's Workforce Investment Areas (WIAs). Available are the most recent statistics on the employment outcomes and characteristics of WIA Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth participants, along with each area's unemployment rates.
