Supporting Cities and Counties
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey.

Project 1: The “how to get your local elected leaders to commit to supporting an office of workforce development’” project
This is a research project that focuses on learning to what degree your local elected leaders are committed to workforce development. You will want to do informational interviews with city councilors and county commissioners to gauge their support for youth and adult workforce preparation and training. You may find excellent examples of workforce development programs in cities across your state, the nation (and the globe).
