Greater Rochester Enterprise (GRE) is an economic development organization committed to attracting new capital investments and creating regional wealth and new jobs throughout the Greater Rochester, NY region.
Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) is a new initiative that focuses on the role of talent development in driving regional economic competitiveness, increased job growth and new opportunities for American workers. Through WIRED, the U.S. Department of Labor will invest $195 million in thirteen regional economies over a three-year period.
The goal of the WIRED initiative is to transform regional economies by enlisting the skills of numerous and varied players to research and produce long-term strategic plans that prepare workers for high-skill, high-wage opportunities in the coming years.
