In 2002, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) funded local Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) to participate in the Sectoral Employment Demonstration (SED). In the context of this demonstration, sectoral initiatives primarily seek to identify workforce needs and opportunities within a local or regional industry or cross-industry occupational group, while also focusing on economic performance and competitiveness. These efforts target a specific population--such as low-income workers, dislocated workers, or new entrants to the job market--to meet both industry needs for a competitive workforce and the needs of those targeted for improved job opportunities. This report documents the projects that were undertaken and outcomes that were achieved by the 38 WIBs that participated in the demonstration.
