This work plan is designed to offer financial and academic incentives to support workforce development efforts. Offering financial and academic incentives for workforce development improves the long term retention of quality employees and fosters a qualified workforce that is committed and prepared to serve in public behavioral health.  WET approaches financial and academic incentives strategically; we focus on filling unmet workforce needs specific for our agency as well as maximizing workforce development funding investment. Efforts include offering tuition reimbursement and educational discount opportunities, degree advancement programs, and support for state and federal loan repayment program applications. To learn more about these incentives and supports, visit or contact our staff development officer, Sherie Park, at
