CRWIG oversees activities authorized under the federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, soon to be transitioned as the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act of 2015, in conjunction with the Crater Regional Workforce Investment Board, Youth Council, and its non-profit entity Learn to Earn.

The CRWIG administers two Comprehensive  One-Stop Workforce Centers  and one satellite office for employers and job seekers across the Crater Region. These centers help businesses find qualified job seekers, while providing one of the most efficient ways to retain existing employees by training them to keep pace with industry standards.
