Maryland was one of nine (9) states and two (2) tribal areas asked by the US Department
of Labor to participate in a Career Pathways Local Implementation Planning Grant. This one year planning
grant was for a total of $60,000 with the grant period to begin July 1, 2010 and ending September 30, 2011.
The Upper Shore WIB, in coordination with Chesapeake College, partners with DLLR completed the
implementation plan which was presented at the Maryland Career Pathways Summit held on September 23, 2011.
The Summit was attended by 250 people representing adult education providers, community college
representatives, local Workforce Investment Board Directors and Chairs, local Department of Social
Services Directors, and other within the workforce system from across the state.
