If you use Illinois
workNet tools and applications, you may notice some changes when it
comes to LWIA searches and filters. The Illinois Local Workforce Area
Realignment Project has approved changes to re-designate three counties
in Illinois. Counties affected by this LWIA Realignment are:
Douglas County: Moving from LWIA 23 to LWIA 17
Calhoun County: Moving from LWIA 21 to LWIA 22
Jersey County: Moving from LWIA 21 to LWIA 22
conjunction with these changes, the Illinois workNet team has updated
its services and tools to reflect the new LWIA designations. If you are
an individual, business, or partner residing in one of the affected
counties above, you may notice that your associated LWIA has changed.
Tools and applications affected in this update include:
New downloadable versions of the LWIA map are also available on workNet. A version of the LWIA map with Economic Development Regions is available on the LWIA Realignment page, and an updated LWIA map with WIOA Resources Center locations can be found on the workNet Service Finder page.
You can visit the LWIA Realignment
page on workNet for more information about the reason, process, and
other resources for the realignment. If you have questions about how
this realignment may affect you, please use our Service Finder to find a workNet Center or Affiliates near you.
