North Central

PREP Region North Central

The communities, employers and workforce of the North Central region collaborate to streamline state, federal and regional services — including community, economic and workforce development as well as transportation planning. Manufacturing has always been a strong employer in the region, and it maintains the largest percentage of employment. The biggest growth potential for the region lies in the area of oil and gas exploration. With the discovery and exploration of the Marcellus and Utica Shale, many opportunities are being presented to the region’s landowners, businesses and workforce.
