This is the newest sector the Funder Alliance is working to organize. The current approach is to capitalize on the work that the Will County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and the Chicago Jobs Council did to form the workforce development portion of an economic development plan for the region focused on freight. All the effort those partners put into forming that plan, and especially the work done engaging employers essentially laid the groundwork for a TDL sector partnership. The Funder Alliance is in the process of engaging stakeholders to that plan to build on the desire they expressed for employer-led workforce solutions in their region and their sector.
