The charge of the Partnership is to:

  1. Lay the groundwork for the development of plans and programs supporting the sectors through the efficient and cost-effective use of federal, state, and local resources;
  2. make the case that Snohomish County is a region for the development of the sectors; and provide a framework for action steps and
  3. further discussions with other stakeholders and partners

To accomplish its charge, the Blueprint Partnership produces annual data-driven and industry-backed reports. The research and data presented in the reports can be used to:

  • Identify jobs that are available and/or needed to expand sectors;
  • identify knowledge and skills individuals must have to be successful in the jobs;
  • and identify educational and training programs required to develop a skilled workforce to fill the jobs.

In addition to producing reports, partners develop action plans for sector-related work, mobilize to act on sector-related work, respond to grants and opportunities, mobilize around community needs and projects, inform and engage in public policy, and provide oversight and advising on joint efforts when needed.
