Key highlights on regulations, policies, and program funding for the transportation professional

Strategic Workforce Development with Tribal Communities

Posted: 4/24/2024

WEBINAR: April 25, 2024, 10:00AM - 11:30AM PT [CLOSED]

Transportation departments face the same workforce challenge: there are not enough people in the transportation construction industry to fill the high demand for workers.

To address this challenge, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has launched initiatives to support building tomorrow’s highway construction workforce.

In this Innovation Exchange Webinar, participants will learn about the FHWA Strategic Workforce Development (SWD) program and its goal to increase the capacity and capability of the highway construction workforce through partnerships with the transportation industry, academia, and federal, state, tribal, and local governments.

In additional, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will share initiatives taken to develop the tribal transportation workforce through its partnership with the Tribal Labor Advisory Committee (TLAC), including the Highway Construction Skills Training (HCST) Program that seeks to create opportunities for groups historically underrepresented in the construction industry.


To access the webinar on April 25th, join the ZoomGov meeting (Meeting ID: 161 921 2094; Passcode: 637827).

Program Managers with FHWA’s Office of Tribal Transportation

Strategic Workforce Development

SWD is an FHWA Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative desigend to develop and desiminate innovative strategies to identify, train, place, and retain workers in highway construction jobs that support the nation's highway system.

One outcome is the “Identify, Train, Place” playboook that can help state, local, and tribal communities identify, train, and place workers in the contractor workforce to meet resource needs to deliver highway construction projects.
