About Us

The Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board (SWWDB) is one of Wisconsin's eleven regional boards established by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA).  SWWDB is responsible for the planning and oversight of the workforce system in southwest Wisconsin - Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Richland, and Rock counties.

All services are driven by the needs of employers and workers and are available through the "one-stop" Job Centers, as well as through our Virtual Job Center -

SWWDB represents the public/private nature of the workforce system. Board members represent private sector businesses, as well as leaders from education, labor, economic development, and other public agencies.
