Welcome to the Poconos WDA

Located in the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, the Pocono Counties Workforce Development Area is comprised of Carbon, Monroe, Pike, and Wayne Counties. The Pocono Counties employers and workers are connected to a wide range of labor markets. These labor markets include those within the borders of the 4 counties, as well as those of Lackawanna, Luzerne/Schuylkill, the Lehigh Valley and the bordering states of New York and New Jersey. In the past decades, the Pocono Counties have become home to thousands of visitors who initially came to enjoy the natural landscape, pristine environment, and reputation as a vacation destination. The areas’ quality of life, low cost of living, and location within commuting distance of these larger labor markets has fueled recent growth in both population and economic development opportunities in our region. Served by the Pennsylvania Turnpike, as well as the major Interstates 80 and 81, the Pocono Counties are centrally located within the Northeastern U.S. Corridor. The Northeastern U.S. Corridor is home to 17% of the U.S. population and 20% of its’ GDP. If the Corridor was a country, it would be the 5th largest GDP in the world. Because of its’ location, the opportunities for economic development and the need for a skilled and diverse workforce within the Pocono Counties WDA are central to our mission.
