WorkFirst Local Planning Area Partnerships (LPAs) serve as forums for coordinating the development and delivery of services and activities to help WorkFirst families become more stable, prepare for employment, and go to work.
LPAs meet regularly to share information, discuss strategies for delivering services, look at local program performance, find ways to fill gaps in assistance, and resolve issues. They also develop strategic plans to improve processes and programs that help WorkFirst participants. Through the LPA network, local partners stay informed as to changing WorkFirst policies, programs, and priorities. LPAs also have the opportunity to develop promising practices and learn from each other.
There are currently 27 LPAs across the state with representatives from local and state agencies, community and technical colleges, nonprofit organizations, tribes, contractors, and other community partners that serve those most in need.
