The Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board (GRWDB) connects job seekers and employers to local, county and state workforce system services in Hunterdon and Somerset Counties. The GRWDB is in the midst of working on its four-year Local Plan, due in the spring of 2023. As part of this work, the GRWDB is asking representatives of local and county social-service agencies in the two counties to complete this 10-minute survey. Responses will help guide the Local Plan formulation and strategies.
