The 2023 High Priority Occupation (HPO) Draft List is now available on the Center for Workforce Information Analysis (CWIA) here: High Priority Occupations.
Submissions to add occupations to the list are due to CWIA on June 9th, 2023. The Final 2023 HPO List will be released on August 1st, 2023.
From the CWIA HPO List site: “High Priority Occupations (HPOs) are one component of Pennsylvania’s industry-driven approach to workforce development. The purpose of the HPO lists is to align workforce training and education investments with occupations that are in demand by employers, have higher skill needs and are most likely to provide family sustaining wages.”
