Services to Individuals
Duluth Workforce Development (DWD) administers a number of employment, training and career development programs through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) including the Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth/Young Adult programs. In that role, the City of Duluth is recognized as one of sixteen (16) Local Workforce Development Areas (LWDA) in Minnesota and the Duluth Workforce Development Board (DWDB) provides oversight.
DWD also supports Older Workers through the Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP); provides services to recipients of Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) and related public assistance programs, under a contract with St. Louis County to help participants find employment, achieve self-sufficiency and move off of assistance and; provides enhanced services to in-school youth and laid off workers through grants awarded by the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED).
Program eligibility requirements apply and services are provided at no-cost to participants. Current or former military members, no matter the era of service, receive priority services in all WorkForce Centers across the state and can be assisted by specially trained veteran’s employment representatives.
