The Detroit Regional Workforce Fund envisions a healthy community that creates the conditions for financial stability of all residents and the economic vitality of businesses in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. Key to this vision is a competitive core city workforce that connects to and propels economic growth in the region and state.

The goals of the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund are, by audience:

Employers:
Increase employers’ ability to attract, retain and advance high-quality talent to satisfy critical business needs.
Residents:
Increase the number of low-skilled, low- to moderate-income residents who advance to middle skill jobs paying family-sustaining wages.
Workforce Development System:
Enhance the structure for workforce development in the region so it promotes economic growth in existing and emerging sectors. Focus is on immediate, tangible change that can be accomplished in a 36 month period.
