Illinois Workforce Investment Board - RG 327 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Illinois Workforce Investment Board - RG 327
Variant Name: Illinois Human Resource Investment Council; Illinois Jobs Training Coordination Council

Historical Note:

The Illinois Jobs Training Coordinating Council was created in 1984 to promote integration of employment and training programs, to further cooperation between government and the private sector in meeting both employers’ needs for trained workers and workers’ needs for good jobs, to provide oversight of workforce preparation programs and to meet federal requirements of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 (P.A. 83-1288).

The Council was changed to the Illinois Human Resource Investment Council in 1995 and was given a broader range of duties. Duties included adopting a comprehensive set of workforce preparation and development goals and implementation strategies for the development of the human resource system within the state, identifying human investment needs and priorities for workforce preparation, and recommending to relevant agencies the provision of services and the use of funds and resources for workforce preparation services (P.A. 89-382).

In 2002, the Council became the Illinois Workforce Investment Board in order to align with federal requirements under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and consists of the Governor, two House members, two Senate members, and other representatives of business, appointed by the Governor. Board duties include making recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly concerning legislation necessary to improve upon workforce investment systems, annually submitting a report to the General Assembly on the progress of the state in achieving state performance measures under the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998, and implementing a method for measuring the progress of the state's workforce development system by using specified benchmarks (P.A. 92-0588, P.A. 93-331).
