Florida's Performance Funding Model was a five-year initiative of CareerSource Florida and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity to help drive stronger performance by measuring local workforce development boards on customized, agreed-upon goals reflecting Florida-emphasized workforce development priorities. The model was designed to help the CareerSource Florida network identify, measure and replicate success to better anticipate and address the employment and training needs of businesses and job seekers statewide.

Local Performance for Statewide Success

Welcome to Florida's Performance Funding Model!
The Model provides opportunities around key metrics to:

  • Map and analyze critical performance data;
  • Develop and deploy effective strategies; and,
  • Enhance services to job seekers and businesses.


The Performance Funding Model was developed in close collaboration with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and the 24 CareerSource Florida local workforce development boards. The ongoing feedback was a leading driver for this groundbreaking project, allowing us to redefine what is possible at the state level.
