Creating Tomorrow’s Future
Beginning in 2015, the County Board of Supervisors has made one of its priorities the promotion of economic development to stimulate job growth in the region and help lift County residents out of poverty. With successful implementation of an economic development program, the County can look to incentivize the growth of small business, build a more dynamic workforce, and provide targeted assistance to those individuals facing the greatest barriers to economic success.
Los Angeles County’s Seven Targeted Industries
Economic development priorities are organized around several workforce development objectives. Among these are encouraging job training for industries that are the most competitive and will generate well-paying jobs to propel economic growth and wealth creation for all residents. The Los Angeles County Economic Development Committee is designed to highlight the targeted high-growth industry clusters across the County and develop workforce programs that align skilled and unskilled workers with these targeted sectors.
