About Us

Welcome to the Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board, Inc.

Developing and maintaining a high quality workforce is critical to attracting and retaining business in Connecticut. It is the charge of the Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board (NRWIB) to develop and sustain an effective labor market system that facilitates economic development and business growth in our region. The NRWIB provides training for workers in high demand labor markets to support the economic growth of such business in our region. 

Our system is user-friendly and highly responsive to the needs of both  the job seeker and the employer. The NRWIB holds partnerships with local businesses, government, education, labor and human services agencies which all work together  to provide the delivery of workforce development services. Three American Job Centers are conveniently located throughout the Northwest Connecticut Region in Waterbury, Torrington, and Danbury.

If you are a employer looking for skilled workers or information, a unemployed citizen of our 41 towns and cities, or a youth seeking their GED or skills for the labor market - you're in the right place!
