State Policy > State Workforce and Education Alignment Project


Ohio has been participating in NSC's State Workforce and Education Alignment Project since May 2015. The state has been using SWEAP to implement new data tools for state policy. Ohio, California, Mississippi, and Rhode Island will receive technical assistance and $180,000 for tool implementation. 

SWEAP and Ohio are working together to utilize system-wide information to better align workforce education and training programs with each other, with employer skill needs, and with the learning and support needs of individual workers. The data tools will help elected state officials create policies that close skill gaps and create more equitable, efficient, and aligned state workforce development and education systems.

This page will continually be updated with the latest project developments and resources. Download the SWEAP Ohio report and fact sheet to learn more.

Policy Goals and Objectives
