In July 2009, the Maryland Workforce Corporation was created as a public instrumentality of the State (Chapter 476, Acts of 2009; Code Labor & Employment Article, secs. 11-1001 through 11-1014).
The Corporation worked to establish a plan and framework for innovative statewide workforce programs that ensure Maryland workers have educational opportunities to acquire those skills required in the workforce. This effort was made in conjunction with the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation and other State agencies. To assure a reliable funding stream for such programs, the Corporation solicited, acquired, and coordinated private and public funding. In accordance with its plan, the Corporation administered and evaluated the programs it developed, and contracted with training providers to conduct skills training and education programs.
Because the Maryland Workforce Corporation was unable to sustain itself financially, it ceased operations in December 2014, and was abolished effective July 1, 2016 (Chapter 345, Acts of 2016).
