Northern Indiana Workforce Board

How we "get people jobs."

The Northern Indiana Workforce Board (NIWB) oversees all of WorkOne Region 2's funding, which comes via public tax revenues under a federal formula administered by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Learn more about the people who help us make decisions--decisions that help us serve the community to the best of our abilities.
