Ohio Workforce Area 2
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) requires the establishment of local workforce areas within states based on geographic, industrial, educational, and other regional economic factors. Summit and Medina Counties together form Ohio’s Local Workforce Area 2. Area 2 is governed by the Summit and Medina Workforce Area Council of Governments (SAMWA COG) and represented by the Summit/Medina Workforce Development Board (WDB). https://www.summitomj.org/ohioworkforcearea2/aboutoharea2
