Workforce/ Economic Development

The Best Southwest region is a dynamic, innovative region in a business-friendly state offering great opportunities for companies to grow and prosper. We offer a vibrant market for workers to find good jobs, a low cost of living and a high quality of life. One of the main tenants of Economic Development is workforce development. Continued workforce development is critically important to the regions business climate which is why the Best Southwest Partnership has identified Economic and Workforce Development as a Core Initiative. This initiative is celebrated each year at our Best Southwest Regional Economic Development Summit (RED Summit)

The Partnership is proud to work with our regional economic development partners, educational partners, and the business community to develop programs that enhance the ability of our region to develop a home grown, talented workforce. A key part of our program is the Skills Development Fund. Administered by the Texas Workforce Commission, the Fund assists local businesses with job training grants.
