Representation is needed for members of community-based organizations that have demonstrated experience and expertise in addressing the employment needs of individuals with barriers to employment, including organizations that serve veterans or provide/support competitive integrated employment for individuals with disabilities. This also can include representatives of organizations that have demonstrated experience and expertise in addressing the employment, training, or education needs of eligible youth, including representative or organizations that serve out-of-school youth.

The Pasco-Hernando Workforce Board is a not-for-profit organization that serves Pasco and Hernando counties by administering local workforce development programs through local, State and Federal initiatives. The Workforce Board is one of 24 regional Workforce Boards in Florida operating under the governance of CareerSource Florida, which was created in 2000 by the Workforce Innovation Act, with a focus on employment, education, and economic development.

The Board meets quarterly, alternating meetings between the New Port Richey and Spring Hill locations. Members of the Board serve a term of four years.
