Tarrant County Alliance for Economic Independence


Tarrant County Alliance for Economic Independence (TCAEI) is envisioned as a community-wide workforce development system whereby all providers of workforce services and employers in the community collaborate to: 1) reach the high-need target groups and communities; 2) understand, validate and promote career pathways; 3) expand work-based learning opportunities; 4) apply for available funding efficiently and effectively; 5) maximize opportunities to attract additional funding; 6) identify gaps in workforce services and 7) develop strategies to fill those gaps. The committee’s stated purpose/mission statement for the TCAEI reads: “To establish a community-wide collaboration that is focused on achieving economic independence for all work able customers through career pathways, identifying and removing barriers to employment.”
